Sample text

People from New York to Michigan to California saw the cartoon and read about Teddy’s kindness toward the defenseless bear. The nation’s love for their president grew even stronger. A couple from New York, Rose and Morris Michtom, saw the cartoon while reading their morning newspaper and, like so many other people of America, were touched by what President Roosevelt had done. Rose and Morris owned a candy shop. They loved having children visit their shop. Big glass jars, stuffed full of brightly colored candy, lined the shelves.

Many legends are based on fiction, which means they are not necessarily true. But the story of Theodore Roosevelt refusing to shoot that bear, Clifford Berryman’s cartoon, and the Michtom’s creation of the first teddy bears is based on fact. Although many may first associate Theodore Roosevelt with the lending of his name to our country’s favorite toy, there is so much more to this great man. He lived life to the fullest. He loved to read—reading two or three books in a day! He read ghost stories at night to his six children in the White House after pillow fights, wrestling, and hide-and-seek games.

Following the president’s orders the men cut the rope and let the bear go free. A few days later a newspaper cartoonist named Clifford Berryman heard about the president’s meeting with the bear. He drew a cartoon illustrating President Roosevelt and a wild bear. The cartoon first appeared in a newspaper called The Washington Post. People everywhere were talking about how the president had ordered his men to let a wild bear go free. Soon, the cartoon appeared in newspapers all over the country.
