What to Do about Alice?

By Barbara Kerley

Illustrated by Edwin Fotheringham

Published by Scholastic Press, 2008

Theodore Roosevelt was a force of nature in his own right in is time.  However, his daughter Alice was a force that even he didn’t know how to handle.  Alice always did her own thing and didn’t care what anyone else thought. She shocked the world with her antics and made inroads all over the world.  As she shocked the public, she also wooed them, and they loved her.  

An entertaining biography for readers looking for nonfiction materials for research in younger grades. Also a great introduction to another side of a prominent political figure in our nation’s history.
