 TEEDIE: THE STORY OF  YOUNG TEDDIE ROOSEVELT by Don Brown
(HMH Books for Young Readers, 2009)

Teedie was not exactly the stuff of greatness: he was small for his
size. Delicate. Nervous. Timid. By the time he was ten years old, he had
a frail body and weak eyes. He was deviled by asthma, tormented by
bullies. His favorite place to be was at home. Some might think that
because of these things, Teedie was destined for a ho-hum life. But they
would be wrong. For teeedie had a strong mind, as well as endless
curiosity and determination. Is that all? No. Teedie also had ideas of
his own–lots of them. It wasn’t long before the world knew him as
Theodore Roosevelt, the youngest president of the United States.
