Format: Paperback
The entire "A picture book of..." biography series byDavid Adler is outstanding. Perfect for lower elementary studentsdoing their first real report. Makes a great read-aloud for non-readers as they are easily completed in one sitting. The cute cartoon-like pictures are kid friendly. But most importantly, they are loaded with information including a timeline of important events.

A Kid's Review on December 16, 2004
Format: Paperback
1. The book is about George Washington. The book started at his early childhood and goes to his death. He was a student. He loved arithmetic. Then he was a surveyer of the Virigina wilderness.He fought in the French and Indian War. He got married to a widow with 2 children. Then he was the leader of the Colonial Army.

2.This book made me feel different about the war because they had to suffer in the cold weather.

3. The setting taks place in a lot of different places. The main place of the is at his home. He rides his horse every were he goes.

4. I recomend thisn book to people who lokes to read Historical Fiction.

I am preparing a lesson plan for first graders and this book works great as an anticipatory set. The pictures are colorful and engaging. The book also brings simplicity to a biography about Washington, bringing up important facts and dates.

Perfect introduction to George Washington for a small child. Entertaining illustrations with one or two brief sentences to whet a child's appetite about our first president. Brief bullet points to give a nice overview, it's not too involved and an educator can choose to introduce more information to match the level of the child. Perfect as a starter book that can begin a unit allowing for a child to pick an area to research for more details. As it is, I find it perfect for the kindergarden set.

My son had a book report for first grade on George Washington and this book gave us all the biography information we needed for the report. I was hoping for more fun facts or cool stories, but for first grade, the book was basic and perfect for the book report. Plan to keep for the next child going through first grade.
