Take a Hike, Teddy Roosevelt by Frank Murphy –ESSENTIAL

Murphy, Frank  Take a Hike, Teddy Roosevelt Disney/Hyperion, 2015 $17.99 EARLY READER/BIOGRAPHY
This step 3 early reader features the life story of Teddy Roosevelt, with an emphasis on his childhood and his growing love of the preservation of animals and habitat. Its filled with cheerful and colorful illustrations.
This fantastic book is almost 50 pages but manages to make them interesting and easy to read. Biographies are great, but when they cross into learning about a President and saving the environment, it’s a perfect mix for a school library. This book could be featured by a teacher for a variety of lessons, as well as a read alone for a student. I would add this book quickly to my collection! Now where to shelve it…..
