What would it be like to live in the White House? Through the eyes of Fala, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's dog, you learn about a few of the historical events that shaped the United States during Roosevelt's presidency. Read how Fala's fun-free existence changed dramatically when on December 7, 1941, Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. Fala continued to be at Franklin's side throughout the long days and nights during this difficult time in America's history. Fala died in 1952 and is buried near Roosevelt's grave where the best friends will forever be together. ' First Dog Fala,' with Elizabeth Steenwyk's easy-to-read vocabulary and Michael Montgomery's large illustrations, is a perfect biography for the beginning reader.
