A series that chronicles the life of each president, this one focused on Theodore Roosevelt. We get to see President Roosevelt as a child and watch as he deals with frailty, the loss of his father, then his mother and first wife. The strength of purpose and morality side-by-side with his running from personal tragedy. A conservationist but a big game hunter. I found there was much to admire but since he was human, there were many contradictions as well. I really like the rounded approach of this series for learning about our presidents with my 4th grader.
