Fun fact: Theodore Roosevelt was the first American to receive the Nobel Peace Prize (for being the mediator in forming a peace agreement with Russia and Japan). I didn't know that, now I do.

This series of books is a good way to introduce students to the presidents of history. They are very readable, and a quick way to learn about the personalities of the presidents without getting too bogged down with politics. It just gives an overview into the Presidents' positions and humanizes them immensely. Also gives some unknown facts that is based on truths.
Very good reads. I've read this - T Roosevelt, T Jefferson, A Lincoln, FDR,

Probably my second favorite in the Dear Mr. President series, after the one on Abraham Lincoln. Theodore Roosevelt has always been one of my favorite presidents, and I thought this book was very interesting; I thought the way the author interpreted Theodore Roosevelt was very real.

The school library had no librarian and no catalog – just shelves of interesting books. She selected books on her own, read what she could, and made up the rest. It was perfect. As a result, she made her career choice – to become an author – in first grade. Whe ...more
