A brief and detailed biography

The first thing that really struck me about this particular biography on President George Washington was the large font which younger readers and older eyes will both appreciate. The author swiftly moves the reader from Washington's childhood through the death of his older brother and his marriage to Martha Custis to the French and Indian War, the various battles of the Revolutionary War and his retirement and death at Mount Vernon. The story of Washington's chopping down of a cherry tree is included, but the author points out that the incident probably did not happen and that it is a purposeful story in that it shows forth the honesty of such a virtuous hero. This is a good way to introduce young readers to biographies. The large and interesting illustrations will be sure to keep their interest.

Very informative!

We purchased this book for a 2nd grade book report and it was perfect. Just long enough to be informative without boring a 7 year old.

George Washington

This book would be a good book to use to share information about George Washington. That is what I used it for. I don't think it would be a book I would just let my students read. There are some messages in the book that you might not want students to know, or some things that you would like to share in a different manner other than a book. Overall though, I did enjoy it!

Pretty Useful

This book is pretty useful for students in elementary school who need to know basic information about George Washington. The only thing I did not like is it did not make specific references to things such as the Revolutionary War, or the Declaration of Independence. The book would discuss these events in Washington's life, but they would not really callthe events by their names.

Meet George Washington

My seven year old son loved this book. As a beginning reader, he never balked when told to sit and read. It provided a great springboard for discussions for bringing history to life and encouraged a love for history and reading!
