You're On Your Way, Teddy Roosevelt
by Judith St. George; illustrated by Matt Faulkner
The author of So You Want to Be President? is back with another presidential book, this time telling the inspirational story of Teddy Roosevelt's childhood of triumphing over challenges (asthma, bullies) to become a successful student and athlete.
This is a great little biography of our 26th president, and it's also a great book to use for character education! "Faulkner captures Teedy's boundless energy and determination in detail-rich scenes... This makes a rousing tale of obstacles overcome." (Kirkus Reviews)
