"I would rather have this book published than anything that has ever been written about me," Theodore Roosevelt said to his editor shortly before TR's death in January 1919. Alas , Roosevelt was never to see publication of the collection, which went on to become an instant bestseller that was reprinted six times between September and November 1919. Most of the letters in this book were written by Theodore Roosevelt to his children over a period of over a dozen years, from their early childhood through maturity. Indeed, long before they were able to read he sent them what they called "picture letters," with crude drawings of his own in illustration of the written text, drawings precisely adapted to the childish imagination and intelligence.From the youngest to the oldest, Roosevelt always wrote to them as equals. He was always their playmate and "boon companion," whether they were toddling infants or youths standing at the threshold of life. The letters are filled with fatherly advice, delicious humor, and anecdotes about the domestic life of a President and his family. Of course, animals are always at center stage, whether it's describing the funeral for a beloved pet rabbit, or a pig that TR has chosen to name Maude.… (lisätietoja)

Teddy Roosevelt’s letters to his children provide a wonderful picture of his devotion. Many are interesting and delightful, though as the book goes on there is repetition of content in his letters to the younger children. For entertainment the episode of Quentin’s snakes is not to be missed, and for sagacity see TR’s advice to Ted when his oldest son is contemplating a military education and career.

And has any President other than TR engaged in Japanese-style wrestling with legit Japanese wrestlers inside the White House? I bet not. Teddy was doing it three times a week. How can you not want to know more about a guy like that? ( )

Such a great insight into the personal life and intimate principles of such an influential man.

Reading what becomes of his children is equal parts exciting and harrowing for this still young parent. ( )

It is an incredible fact of life that only about 15 years ago people would write, send and receive hundreds of letters per year, while nowadays a letter written in long-hand is a rarity. Generations of children are growing up without receiving a letter, either from parents or friends.

Theodore Roosevelt's letters to his children is a collection of letters written by President Theodore Roosevelt to his children between 1898 and 1911.

The Roosevelts had a large family. Despite his busy work as President, Theodore "Teddy" Roosevelt kept up a regular correspondence with his children, sending individual letter to Ethel, Ted, Jr., Kermit, and Archibald, "Archie". The letters are rarely about Roosevelt's work as President. They mainly address topics of interest to the children, at different ages, such as their reading of Dickens, and holidays. Many letters contain beautiful references to natural history.

Theodore Roosevelt's letters to his children were a bestseller in the United States, and are still very readable today. ( )

Sweet book of letters President TR wrote to his kids. It includes his drawings, too! Covers topics from silly to serious that is still relevant today. ( )

In the summer of 1902, during the first year the Theodore Roosevelt family occupied the White House and despite the president's determination to shield his six children from the scrutiny of the press, Frances Benjamin Johnston was given permission to photograph the family at the urging of TR's old friend, journalist Jacob Riis.
