Children's LiteratureAs the first President of the United States of America, George Washington holds an important place in history. The reader is taken briefly through Washington's life as he grows up on a farm in Verginia, serves in two wars, and becomes President of a new nation. The book ends by discussing how we remember George Washington now, one way being the Washington Monument. This entire book is bilingual, with English words written on the top of the page and Spanish on the bottom. It is part of the "I Like Biographies! Bilingual!" series. Each page of words is followed by a page with a piece of artwork and a description under it, first in English, then Spanish. Almost all of this artwork comes from the Library of Congress. This book has an obvious connection to history, but would work very well in integrating art to history. The readers are exposed to different works of art, but they are placed in a simple and understandable context for younger students to benefit from. The book was originally written in 2004 in English, but this is the first edition of the bilingual version. 2006, Enslow Publishers Inc, Ages 7 to 10.
