My 8, 10 and 11 yr old loved this!

This book is interesting and factual and I like children's books to give a synopsis of history, and then my grand kids can read them.

There were a lot of interesting facts.

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 wonderful. I was looking for a collection to give to my 8 year old grandson....3 books at a time. This collection fit the "bill". It is informative, well made, full of history and fun illustrations.

My 8-year old is currently reading this book to me. I am happy he is getting an introduction to George Washington.

However, I want to object to one particular point made in the book regarding slavery. It states that African slaves were 'kidnapped' from Africa.

From my readings, particularly 'THE SLAVE TRADE: THE STORY OF THE ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE: 1440 - 1870' by Hugh Thomas, African slaves were overwhelmingly purchased by other Africans. Intertribal warfare and raids on their own kingdoms provided the human cargo.

I carry enough guilt in this world, but I am not going to except an untruth that paints Westerners as the only propagators of greed and evil.

So fun and simple to read with a fledgling General...would recommend for all who love a true American Hero...especially those who want to impart their love for GW on the kiddos.

My 8-year-old daughter read this book on her own and really enjoyed it. She said it was "great!" She learned some interesting facts about Washington, like "he led a lot of soldiers and cared for them." She has read some of the other books in this series also, and she would like to read them all. I read "Who is Harriet Tubman" with her, and it was excellent!

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.

My 5th grader used this book as a reference for her report. It was full of interesting facts. I learned that George Washington's mother was a very cold woman, who never took pride in anything that GW did.
