What might we expect to see in this book based on our previous experience with Doreen Rappaport’s work?  Eleanor Roosevelt is a very well known woman.

Eleanor Roosevelt was raised in a privileged but stern Victorian household, with an affectionate but mostly absent father and a critical mother who made fun of her daughter's looks. Alone and lonely for much of her childhood, Eleanor found solace in books and in the life of her lively and independent mind. Her intellectual gifts and compassionate heart won her the admiration of many friends -- and the love of her future husband, Franklin Delano Roosevelt. While other young women of her class were spending time at dances and parties, Eleanor devoted her energies to teaching children in New York City's poorest neighborhoods. Later, she became the most socially and politically active -- and controversial -- First Lady America had ever seen. Ambassador, activist, and champion of civil rights, Eleanor Roosevelt changed the soul of America forever.In her eloquent prose, Doreen Rappaport captures the essence of Eleanor's character and the deep significance of her legacy. With beautiful paintings by Gary Kelley and selections from Eleanor's own writings, Eleanor's Big Words is an extraordinary tribute to an extraordinary American.

Valuable tool for installing involvement in politics. Women have the vote, and it was a privilege hard won. Eleanor Roosevelt spoke her mind.
The pictures are lovely paintings from photographs.
Every young girl should have this book.

This book was absolutely great. There are so many ways in which this book can be used to teach children. The historical aspect alone is enough, however it can be used to raise the confidence of children who are/have low self-esteem or are quiet and withdrawn. Eleanor Roosevelt was such a child and look at what she became. The illustrations are great. The activities that can come from this book are limitless; journal writing, research, time lines, etc. This is truly a great book.

This picture book is unique. On the front cover there is Eleanor's face and on the back cover, the title. I was amazed by Eleanor Roosevelt's life. She was not loved by her mother who called her "Granny"-- a very serious and ugly name. Her father loved her, but he drank a lot and was often away from their home. Before she was 10, her parents died and she lived with her grandmother, uncles and aunts. Her grandmother educated her well, except for the lack of hugs and kisses. As an adult, her life was very controlled by her mother-in-law. When her husband was elected to the new York State Senate, her family moved to New York. Finally, she was free from her mother-in-law's powerful rules. Eleanor felt, "It was a wife's duty to be interested in whatever interests her husband." After Franklin's death, Eleanor kept on working. She overcame from her hardship and became a strong human.
I think she was the one of the greatest Presidential wives. ( I like George Washington's wife as well.) This book is very educational. I learned a lot.

Eleanor Roosevelt stands out in American history as a tireless advocate for social justice, human rights, and equality. Her remarkable career as First Lady of the United States, speaker, author, activist, and diplomat stands in contrast to her upbringing as a deeply insecure, shy, and unhappy child. She grew up in a household rich in financial wealth but poor in affection and love, and her parents both died when she was young.

At the age of 15, under the guidance of a progressive teacher, Eleanor reached a turning point in terms of developing a true sense of self-assurance and a resolve to speak her mind. For the rest of her life she continued to advocate for change in an array of profound social issues, including child labor, racism, mental illness among war veterans, gender equality in the labor market, a social safety net during the Great Depression, and human rights all over the world.

Eleanor, Quiet No More: The Life of Eleanor Roosevelt is a superb book that makes Eleanor Roosevelt's story accessible to younger readers. Gary Kelley's illustrations are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they also communicate a wealth of substantive content regarding Eleanor's upbringing and her political activities. Doreen Rappaport expertly weaves together her informative text with a set of moving quotations from Eleanor's speeches and writings. This book is highly recommended without any reservation.

This year, my family has been interested in the Roosevelts. My husband and I are watching an old PBS documentary about Franklin. My daughter already knew a little bit about Franklin and Eleanor because they are characters in one of her favorite movies, [i]Annie[/i]. I chose this book for my oldest daughter, who is almost 5, and we read it together.

The book was a great overview of Eleanor's life, which begins rather sadly but ends in triumph. The book does not shy away from the fact that Eleanor spent several portions of her life dealing with unhappy or unkind relatives, first those who raised her and later her mother-in-law. This was a little difficult for my daughter to grasp, but an interesting spark to a conversation about different types of family backgrounds. Similarly, reading this book read to conversations about segregation and racial inequality, subjects which we have not discussed in detail before.

I enjoyed the read, probably more than my daughter did, but that's okay. The illustrations are beautiful but I regret that they're so dour. The overall tone of the book is celebratory of Eleanor's accomplishments, and the pictures, while gorgeous, did not reflect the spirit of the book as much as i'd like them to.
Eleanor, Quiet No More is an absolutely stunning picture book biography in both narrative and illustrations. Doreen Rapparort so beautifully captured Eleanor Roosevelt's determination to change from that quiet sad young girl into a determined woman who was the voice for many. Gary Kelley’s art added an addition layer of warmth and beautiful setting to capture the time.

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right – for you’ll be criticized anyway.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
