THIS BIOGRAPHY OF TEDDY ROOSEVELT TAKES YOU THROUGH THE LIFE OF TEDDY. IT BEGINS WHEN HE WAS JUST A SICKLY LITTLE BOY AND TAKES YOU THROUGH HIS DEATH. ITS SPEEKS VOLUMES OF HIS CHARACTER THAT HE THOUGHT HIS REGIMENT HAVING THE HIGHEST CAUSUALTIES MEANT THEY WERE THE BRAVEST. IT WAS INTERESTING FOR AN INFORMATIONAL BOOK, BUT I SEE THIS MORE AS A BOOK A TEACHER WOULD ASSIGN THEN A READ A CHILD MIGHT HAVE PICKED UP ON THIER OWN.
