Summary "It all started when one of America's most iconic and beloved presidents, Theodore Roosevelt, refused to shoot a bear on a hunting trip. A newspaper cartoonist, Clifford Berryman, heard the news and created a political cartoon about it, which a candy shop owner, Morris Michtom, showed to his wife, Rosie. Rosie Michtom, whose handmade toys were often displayed in their Brooklyn shop, was so inspired by the story that she made an adorable stuffed toy bear, which the couple decided to name "Teddy's Bear." Demand for Rosie's bears grew so high that the couple went on to found their own toy company and opened a factory in Brooklyn. While most of the events in this story are widely accepted to be true, certain details cannot be corroborated, and a historical note at the end of the book will make this clear"--Provided by publisher.
