"Good Morning Alexander," the father said. "It's time for breakfast, and then let's play ball." "My name is not Alexander!" said the little boy. "Then who is sleeping in my son's bed?" asked the father. "I am Theodore, one of the greatest, grandest presidents who ever was!" "Well Theodore, park yourself here and save your energy for today's game."

So begins the day for Alexander, an imaginative little boy who explores the innovative men who influenced and shaped our world.
