My exhibit will be called “Teddy’s Menagerie” I still haven’t decided where I want it to be exhibited. I do know that this exhibit is important because it will inform the public about one of America’s most famous and wild families that lived in the White House. 
Theodore had six children: Alice, Theodore Jr., Kermit, Ethel, Archibald, and Quentin, but each one was wild and outgoing in every way possible. The most popular was Alice because of her spirited behavior and her being “allergic to discipline” always made her a target for publicity. President Roosevelt even said "I can either manage Alice or the country. I can't do both.” There are also many stories about the children and their menagerie of pets, stories of bringing snakes to parties or office meetings to riding a pony in the White House elevator. I believe children and even adults would love to learn about the Roosevelt Family and how they shocked the nation. It is always important to remember our nation Presidents and their families.
