This book is easy to read, easy to understand, filled with great information about who George Washington was and the wonderful impact he had on the formation of the United States. I read it to my boys (7 and 9) but it can be read by them alone. I highly recommend all of these Who Was books, they are well written and give a complete picture of the individual and their outstanding talents. We own over a dozen of them. You won't be disappointed!

This book is just right for kids in the 1st grade through 5th or 6th. At this age, they haven't heard much about the Revolution or our Founding Fathers, so George is a great book to start with. There are lots of drawings and the reading is easy. The story is even better and books of this reading level will get the facts straight and at the same time encourage our kids to read on. Nice job, I would buy the entire series and read them to my kids at night, at least as often as I read Harry Potter to them.

I like reading about how America looked back in the day and exactly how folks spent their time. Washington and his early days were spent as a privileged citizen. He became a very good horseman and was well respected. His early years as a military leader for the colony were not great. But he did show signs as a leader if not an expert military tactician. He was victorious 3 out of 9 major confrontations with the British. So his war record was not exactly good except for one major accomplishments- he outlasted the British and accepted their surrender at Yorktown. My 1st and 2nd graders were very disappointed that he didn't cut down the cherry tree, so I now leave that out of my presentations. The main thing they gain from this book is that America was all but "one and done" when it came to waging war and gaining their independence. But through trust and outstanding leadership, not only did Washington end the war victoriously, but he was elected our first president. And had he not attended the writing of our constitution and led the representatives, I doubt seriously that the 13 colonies, now states would have ever agreed to become the United States of America back in 1787.

Washington was our leader. The people trusted him and followed his lead through many harrowing experiences.

I bought these for my third grade classroom. They are great for the biography genre and then to use for report writing. The three years I've used them so far the kids LOVED them. Easy for their reading levels, informative, and people they have heard of in their lives. They would read their own and then read other that they had heard of. Could have left these books out 1/2 year and they would have still been reading them.

I purchased 8 copies of this book to use during a guided reading class and found that my students thoroughly enjoyed the information shared in the book. They especially enjoyed the fact about the most famous exhibit at Mount Vernon.

We've used several books in this series to study famous historical figures. These books are great for kids because they have great information, but are not so lengthy that kids would find them overwhelming.
