Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The life of George Washington is brought to light in this book from the "First Biographies" series. His birth, childhood, work as a surveyor, and marriage to Martha Custis are described first, then his involvement in the American revolution. His election as the first President of the United States and his contribution to the design of Washington, D.C. and the American court system is detailed. An ongoing timeline highlighting the events described on each page makes it easy for children to put each event into a chronological context. A glossary and list of books and websites for further research completes this introductory text on Washington. Reproductions of pictures and paintings, as well as photographs of historical locations, aid the learning process. This book would be a good reference work for a child beginning to learn about the figures in American history. 2003, Capstone, Ages 5 to 8.
