To Dare Mighty Things: The Life of Theodore Roosevelt BSW1202

US$17.95

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 nation's 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. Payne's dramatic artwork, the story of President Teddy, touchstone of American history, is brought to life.

多琳·拉帕波特是一位屡获大奖的优秀作家。在这本人物传记绘本中,她将名言摘录与散文叙事完美地结合到了一起,生动地讲述了一个体弱多病的小男孩如何成长为一名了不起的男子汉的历程。C·F·佩恩引人入胜的图画与多琳的文字交相辉映,使得这位在美国历史上试金石似的的人物——泰迪总统的故事既生动又有趣。

By Doreen Rappaport, Illustrated by C.F. Payne, Paperback, Simplified Chinese characters, 48 pages, 11"x11"
