Item description for Young Teddy Roosevelt by Cheryl Harness...

Moves from Teddy Roosevelt's boyhood, a period marked by weakness and ill health, to his years at Harvard, the death of his first wife, his second marriage, his military years, and his famed charge up Cuba's San Juan Hill.

Publishers Description
George Washington died 200 years ago, but his story is as inspiring as ever. Through lively text and vivid watercolors, Cheryl Harness brings the man behind the monument to life. She presents a portrait of George Washington, dodging bullets in the French and Indian War, outfoxing the British during the American Revolution, and courting and marrying the wealthy widow Martha Curtis. In her fourth presidential biography, Harness shows the statesman's many sides -- a boy with a dream, an experimental farmer, and a man who loved to dance and socialize.

Reviews - What do customers think about Young Teddy Roosevelt?

A historical biography that children can appreciate.  Sep 12, 2000
After scaling down adult historical books to kids' level, it was wonderful to have a beautifully illustrated book that taught something other than dry facts. Cheryl Harness seems to have a knack for history and making the characters feel real and everyday to children. This book in particular was empowering in the manner it dealt with Teddy Roosevelt's overcoming of asthma to continue his nature studies and become a fine soldier and leader as well. His strength and perserverence to become strong and healthy is a real mental lift for any child, but especially appealing to those that suffer from asthma or another illness.
