I really enjoyed reading Becoming George Washington and felt intrigued to learn the early years of George Washington. Its amazing to learn how George went through challenges and how he overcome them. I also enjoyed learning how he was determined to make it to the top despite what stands in the way. This book made me want to learn more about his life and I hope to see another book in the series to read the other part of his life as well.
Well written. It is informative and entertaining.
