Teedie by Don Brown

Brown, Don Teedie: The Story of Young Theodore Roosevelt. Houghton Mifflin, 2009. $16.00. PICTURE BOOK. When “Teedie” was young, his asthma and small, scrawny body kept him from having a strong body to match his strong mind. When “Teddy” graduated from college and headed off into the Wild West, coming back a strong, bold person. Eventually he worked his way up to President of the United States. I really enjoyed this picture book as a concise, but well-written look into the youth and adulthood of this President. You have to wonder if Teddy Roosevelt would have ever been considered for President in our modern media culture – but he was, and his story is great. EL, MS – ADVISABLE. Cindy, Library-Teacher.
