A Letter to Mrs. Roosevelt
This  review has taken a while.  I have been busy doing final assignments and exams.  It is nearly all over, then I can read some of the books I have waiting to be devoured and brought to life.  So keep checking in and I will keep reading and reviewing as our summer here begins.
This book is an easy read for young readers.  It is of a young girl during the depression.  Her father owns a business and gives his services in exchange for food if people cannot pay him.  This enables the family to stay feed, but not pay the bills.  The house becomes ticketed and they have limited time before they are made to move out. 
Margo has to write a letter for a class assignment.  She decides to write to Mrs Roosevelt and ask for help as she believes Mrs Roosevelt can fix anything.  The outcome of the whole story shows the beauty of child innocence and character. 
If you want a story for your children to show them anything is possible, if you at least try first, then this is a book worth handing them.  It is truly a beautiful story.
