DEAR MR. PRESIDENT Franklin Delano Roosevelt: Letters from a Mill Town Girl

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by George Guidall, George Wilson, Bonnie Kelly-Young

Children Ages 10+ • 2.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

What a delightful and entertaining way to teach children about one of our most important and influential presidents--Franklin Delano Roosevelt--and the world he helped to change. George Wilson's strong, robust voice certainly calls to mind the comfortable, solid leader of the "fireside chats," a man who just might take the time to write to a total stranger to get her view of the world. Bonnie Kelly-Young is outstanding as the young Emma--who is characterized by her young voice, incorrect grammar, hesitant speech, and the bit of a chip on her shoulder. But we hear the maturing of her speech as her voice reflects a softer, older, more sophisticated Emma. Using different readers for each character truly brings readers into their world. George Guidall completes the ensemble with a satisfying reading of the introduction and the historical notes at the end. A worthwhile addition to any collection. W.L.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award
