Reading Level: 4th − 5th Grade
Aunque la polio lo dejó en silla de ruedas, Franklin Delano Roosevelt asumió el cargo durante la Gran Depresión y se desempeñó como presidente durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Elegido cuatro veces, pasó trece años en la Casa Blanca. La forma en que condujo al país a través de problemas tremendamente difíciles, muy parecidos a los que enfrenta Estados Unidos hoy, lo convierte en una biografía oportuna y fascinante.
