I wanted a hot dog myself after reading this account of Eleanor Roosevelt and her love of hot dogs She served them at a picnic for King George VI and ueen Elizabeth during their 1939 visit to the US much to the chagrin of many people who felt that hot dogs were inappropriate to feed to royalty Eleanor is my hero for following her instincts instead of going with the crowd Well the king loved them the ueen not so much I do wonder if when Eleanor went to visit them in England after Franklin died they served her hot dogs in return I loved Victor Juhasz's illustrations here a bit like caricatures with Eleanor's big smile everywhere His colorful pictures with a hint of humor really make this book Hot Dog is a forgotten episode in history of AmericanBritish relations that Kimmelman has charmingly brought back to life Highly recommended for hot dog lovers and Eleanor Roosevelt fans

Awards NAGrades 2nd 3rd gradeSummary This story is about the first Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and her picnic that she threw for the king and ueen of England in honor of 150 years having passed since the United States gained its independence from England The picnic was very important as it was the first time reigning British royalty had ever visited America One of the main goals of the picnic was to strengthen the relationship between the two countries Review I think this book would serve as an interesting read during a unit on American history or presidentsfirst ladies The story is for entertainment purposes than actual learning material because it doesn’t have enough information to be utilized as a reliable source I thought the illustrations drawn in the caricature style were endearing and fitting as it reminded me of political cartoons which are typically drawn in the same style In class uses The book could be used as a read aloud during a unit on American history or American presidentsfirst ladies I would also recommend it as an independent reading book to a student who is interested in history
