    Teddy Roosevelt bio recommendation?

    Anyone found a good biography of Theodore Roosevelt they can recommend? We're visiting Sagamore Hill in a few weeks and I'd like him to have some background knowledge before visiting. For a third grader but he's a strong reader.

          We have “Meet Theodore Roosevelt” by Ormonde De Kay. It’s part of an old series of hardback books for this age group that my mom had in her classroom and handed down to us.. You can get it used for a few dollars. The whole series is really good and my kids really enjoy them.

            Meet Theodore Roosevelt (Step-Up Books) https://www.amazon.com/dp/0394900650..._oF8hBb6QFAZKQ

            $6, used, on Amazon. Two other books are available on Andrew Jackson and Lewis & Clark by the author.

            So it depends on how quickly you need it. The first book (new) arrives in two days; this one (used) can take up to 10 days to arrive at your door.

                My son and I read this one together many years ago (he was probably 10-ish or so and also a very strong reader with great comprehension.) You can peek inside on Amazon. It may seem a bit too advanced. We LOVED (LOVED, LOVED, LOVED!) this book. All of the books in this series are beyond outstanding.

                  This was a good, longer picture book that we enjoyed about Roosevelt’s national parks initiative. It’s called “The Camping Trip that Changed America.”

                    And a great book that you might read aloud/as a family/excerpts of would be Mornings on Horseback by David McCollough.

                      We have this book but I hadn't thought to use excerpts. Great idea!
