About the Author
David Adler was born April 10, 1947. He graduated Queens College in 1968 with a BA in economics and education and licenses to teach mathematics and history. He then worked for nine years as a New York City mathematics teacher. While teaching he studied at New York University and in 1971 was awarded an MBA in marketing. He began work on a PhD in marketing when inspiration struck and he wrote his first book, A LITTLE AT A TIME (Random House, 1976). Suddenly his focus changed from marketing to writing.
In 1973 he married Renee Hamada, a psychologist, and in 1977 their first child, Michael was born. By that time David had written several books. He was granted a child-care leave from teaching and while Renee continued her work, David stayed home, took care of Michael, and wrote in earnest. It was during his first year on leave that he wrote CAM JANSEN AND THE MYSTERY OF THE STOLEN DIAMONDS. David's ANDY RUSSELL series was inspired by another family member and the many adventures the family had with his enthusiasm and his pets. He lives in New York State. www.davidaadler.com.
Share this read-along with young readers eager to learn more about our nation's history. A lively fife and drum playing "YankeeDoodle Dandy" welcome the listener to A PICTURE BOOK OF GEORGE WASHINGTON. A narrative tone that is sincere and respectful and a slow, even pace afford the young listener time to absorb facts about the French and Indian War, British colonial taxes, and the Continental Army. Two additional musical interludes frame the chronology of "Important Dates" that offers an overview of Washington's life. T.B. (c) AudioFile, Portland, Maine
