Children's LiteratureThis 128 page volume in the "In American History" series tells how Theodore (who the author tells us hated to be called Teddy), as secretary of the Navy, leading to victories in the Spanish-American War, and helped the United States become the world power it is today. This is a dry book about what might have been an exciting period in American history. Black and white photographs of famous historical figures, maps and charts, and a political cartoon are interspersed with text. Not every page has an illustration, however. Little thought has been given to browse-appeal, or to giving a reader any reason to use this book, except as report fodder. This will be useful for that purpose, and it is well organized. A timeline, chapter notes, further reading, Internet addresses, and an index are appended. 2003, Enslow, Ages 11 to 13.
