Little Teddy Freeman, yes that’s what people called him, was only seven years old when he learned a valuable lesson in life – actually, it was more than just one valuable lesson. You see, Little Teddy Freeman wanted to buy himself a boat, but he didn’t have the money. One day, while watching his grandfather work in his garden and listening to his grandfather saying that he wished he had more leaves for his garden, Little Teddy Freeman came up with the idea to rake leaves in his neighborhood to make a little bit of money. He didn’t realize it at the time, but he was learning a lot of valuable lessons in his new business enterprise: he learned the value of money, the meaning of making a good bargain, the importance of being dependable and a good worker, and much more. He didn’t get his boat right away, but he worked and saved and eventually did purchase his very own boat.
Edward L Freeman’s children’s story, Grandpa's Story of Little Teddy Freeman, is actually the author’s story. He writes about a powerful and loving relationship that he enjoyed with his grandparents, sharing some of the important lessons that he learned. Now a grandfather himself, the author recalls his own growing up years. By writing his story, Edward hopes to inspire the same valuable attributes of love, respect and integrity that his grandparents taught him. Grandpa’s Story of Little Teddy Freeman is the author's legacy to another generation, a legacy full of love, respect and integrity. Nicely illustrated. A real treasure.
