To Dare Mighty Things: The Life of Theodore Roosevelt by Doreen Rappaport

President Theodore Roosevelt is known as the man with a plan, the rough rider. His figure stands tall in American history; his legacy stretching him to larger-than-life proportions.

But before his rise to fame, he was just Teedie, a boy with ambitious dreams to change the world, and the conviction to see his stupendous imaginings brought to fruition.

As an American president, he left an impressive mark upon his country. He promised a square deal to all citizens, he tamed big businesses, and protected the nations wildlife and natural beauty. His fearless leadership assured that he would always be remembered, and his robust spirit now dares others to do mighty things.

In her moving picture book portrait, award-winning author Doreen Rappaport uses her well-honed approach of personal quotes and vivid prose to spin together the tale of a sickly boy who became a monumental man. Coupled with C. F. Paynes dramatic artwork, the story of President Teddy, touchstone of American history, is brought to life.
