Mind Your Manners, Alice Roosevelt! by Leslie Kimmelman

Kimmelman, Leslie. Mind Your Manners, Alice Roosevelt! illustrated by Adam Gustavson. Peach Tree, 2009. $16.95. President Theodore Roosevelt could handle wars and governments, but he couldn’t handle his unruly daughter Alice. She jumped on the sofa, dressed eccentrically, sat on the roof, drove a car—fast, and carried a pet snake named Emily Spinach around the White House. This is fun and informative picture book biography about a girl who liked to have a good time. The illustrations look like paintings from the early 1900s. EL-ADVISABLE. Samantha, Public Librarian.
