Publisher's Summary

This Splash Read collection includes seven historical fiction short stories about people in New York history. The stories are: 

  • Al Smith at the Fish Market
  • Theodore Roosevelt Grows Strong and Healthy
  • FDR Learns to Walk Again
  • FDR's Inauguration Day
  • The Penmanship of Ely Parker

While Splash Read stories are enjoyed by kids of all ages, they were written to facilitate a conversation between a child and parent or student and teacher. Each story introduces an influential person from history. Stories discuss life skills, challenges, problem-solving, and important issues. We’ve heard positive reviews from kids as young as first-graders and as old as 10th-graders.
