Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

George Washington grew up in the English colony of Virginia. He was tall and strong, fair in judgement, and respected by his friends as a good leader. As he grew older, George saw how England took advantage of the American colonies?and he didn't like it. When the colonies declared their independence, George was chosen to lead their army as its general. And when the colonies won their freedom, George was elected to lead the new nation as its first president.

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!

Format: Paperback
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.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By DONALD G. FOX on March 19, 2008
Format: Paperback
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.

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.

Format: Paperback
I homeschool and my children are all under 10 y.o. While my oldest can read upper level books and enjoy long chapter books, the little ones do not have her stamina or vocabulary. This book was a perfect read aloud book to all my children. There was enough information, action and suspense to keep my 10 y.o interested. However the story line was simple enough that my youngest children were able to follow it without getting tired or bored. This book would be a great addition to a Unit Study on the Revolutionary War; or a first chapter book for a child who knows how to read but needs to work on his stamina.

This book on George Washington was exactly what we hoped for! Our 6 year old son is very interested in Presidential history and wanted to begin with the very first President. Our entire family enjoyed reading this book and we all learned new and interesting facts about the father of our great nation!
