As an adult, I loved this book! It was an absorbing experience!
We homeschool our children with an accredited curriculum out of California. This book was required reading. I searched our library system first and found it at a local community college. It came in an ancient (1941) hardback with yellowed pages. It was wonderful reading it with my 5th grade son and discussing the life of George Washington. The book's illustrations were entertaining as well as informative. They showed other events going on in the world at different times in GW's life. The book detailed his home life and his thoughts and desires. I am purchasing the paperback in hopes that the illustrations and content will be the same. I want my other 3 children to enjoy the same book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Humanities Approach to History
George Washington's World was given to our six year old son as a Christmas present. What began as one of his two parents reading to him before bedtime has become a family affair, all four of us sitting together, listening not just to the regular retelling of George Washington's life but to WORLD history. Grouped according to the stages of his life (boy, soldier, farmer, etc.), we are appreciating the humanities approach to understanding the people/names and the effects their lives, inventions or decisions had on the world. As Americans we often fail to look beyond our own country's history - this book opens the world's history to our children.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
