Teedie tells the story of a young and feeble Teddy Roosevelt that conquers hardships and trials to eventually become the youngest president of the United States. This is a lovely storybook portraying perseverance and determination. The Author's Note in the back includes a short synopsis of Teddy's life. pb. ~ Gina
Teedie was not exactly the stuff of greatness: he was small for his size. Delicate. Nervous. Timid. By the time he was ten years old, he had a frail body and weak eyes. He was deviled by asthma, tormented by bullies. His favorite place to be was at home. Some might think that because of these things, Teedie was destined for a ho-hum life. But they would be wrong. For Teedie had a strong mind, as well as endless curiosity and determination. Is that all? No. Teedie also had ideas of his own--lots of them. It wasn't long before the world knew him as Theodore Roosevelt, the youngest president of the United States.
