These were said by Alice Roosevelt to her father as her solution to her education and can be found in Barbara Kerley's What to do about Alice?
And what an education she received!
I wish every child could have access
to a library as Alice did.
I LOVE this book.
I'm not the only one. What To Do About Alice? has won numerous awards: Sibert Honor Book, Boston Globe-Horn Book Honor Book, Irma Black Award Honor Book, Parents Choice Award , An ALA Notable Book Booklist, starred review, School Library Review, starred review, Horn Book, starred review, and Kirkus Reviews, starred review.
"She read voraciously and drank in Father's tales of Davy Crockett, George Armstrong Custer and Daniel Boone."
"Alice called it, 'eating up the world'"
and breaking the mold.
"As her love and knowledge of politics grew, she quickly became one of Father's most trusted advisers and ardent champions."
