One of the recent reviews for the book

Dakota D 4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging illustrations and interesting facts Reviewed in the United States on April 2, 2021

This would be a great book to give to a child whose family is planning a trip to Hyde Park or who has just been there. It would also be great for kids who have an interest in American history. Photos of the house are interspersed with interesting facts about Roosevelt’s life. I learned some things myself! Parents may want to help younger readers to understand some of the basics and concepts that are not clearly spelled out, such as an introduction to who FDR was and what Hyde Park is, but I think older elementary students will enjoy this book on their own. The photos and illustrations are quite engaging and will be enough to keep browsers turning the pages.
