Childhood Of Theodore Roosevelt  

Theodore Roosevelt, the first US president of the twentieth century, was born in the year 1858 in the city of New York. He was known by the name of ‘Teddy’ during his childhood days. Though he was born to a wealthy family, his life was never smooth due to his illness. He was suffering from asthma and his eye sight was also very poor. Due to his bad health he remained a weak and sickly boy.

As far as his childhood is concerned, he was very brilliant. He was immensely interested in nature and outdoors. He used to collect various biological specimens which resulted in smelling of his house. He was always very close to his siblings. He also had close relations with his sister’s friend called Edith Carrow. Edith was even asked for joining their nursery school that was actually located in Roosevelt home.

When he was 13 years old, he took classes in taxidermy. This was the time he was given the very first gun of his. His illness made him suffer throughout his early years. He also had various other ailments apart from asthma. He suffered from intestinal groaning, headaches, stomach pains and fevers. But asthma was the main issue as far as his health was concerned. Theodore traveled to Europe with his family when he was just 10 years old. He enjoyed the entire trip, but told his parents that he missed his friend Edith. After this trip, the family went for their second trip to Egypt together where his interest about collecting the specimens from natural history started.
