Acclaimed author and illustrator, Don Brown’s latest biographical picture book, Teedie: The Story Of The Young Teddy Roosevelt (Houghton Mifflin, $16.00) is an inviting, warm-hearted introduction to the youngest elected president of the United States. Engaging pen, ink and watercolor illustrations capture the spirit of this frail, asthmatic and timid boy. Roosevelt’s father recognized his strong mind and determination and encouraged him to overcome his physical weaknesses. From Harvard graduate to cowboy to elected official, Roosevelt’s many remarkable accomplishments are brought to life in this finely crafted volume. Ages 4-8.
