Overview

True or False? Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt had the best attendance record in his school

False! Teddy was so sickly as a child that he didn't even go to elementary or high school. He studied at home instead.

  • Roosevelt organized and led a volunteer regiment of the army, called the Rough Riders, to fight in the Spanish-American War.
  • As president, he protected forty million acres of national forests and created five national parks and fifty-one wildlife refuges.
  • A cartoon of Teddy, depicting his glasses and big teeth, inspired a toy make to create the teddy bear.

I enjoyed this book written by Gwyneth Swain about one of America's greatest Presidents. I learned many new and interesting facts about Theodore Roosevelt. One thing I learned was that as a little boy he was very sick with asthma and then needed glasses. I also learned that his mother and first wife died on the same day. His father was already dead and so he went to west because he was sad and lonely. The most important thing I learned was that even though life can be very hard and sad if you keep on trying you can succeed and maybe even become one of America's greatest Presidents like TR.
