Mind Your Manners, Alice Roosevelt!
Written by Leslie Kimmelman & illustrated by Adam Gustavson
picture book
Recommend Ages: 5-8

The 26th president of the United States was a strong and clever man who could handle almost everything–except his eldest child, Alice.<br>Alice Roosevelt was an independent, outspoken young woman during a time when women were supposed to be conventional and reserved. Whether it was riding a pig, keeping a pet snake, or driving a car–and speeding!–Alice did what she wanted. When her father told her she had to obey his rules while she lived under his roof, Alice decided to spend her time on top of the roof!<br>Leslie Kimmelman brings readers a factual and affectionate look at the free spirit who caught the attention of a nation. Kimmelman juxtaposes Alice Roosevelt’s antics with the achievements of her father, all the while demonstrating the tender bond between them. Adam Gustavson’s illustrations perfectly capture the story’s humor and the strong personalities of its characters while keeping within its proper historical context.
