This picture book biography about George Washington detail his leadership roles from his job as a surveyor through the French-Indian War and American Revolutionary War to the beginnings as the first President. The biography is intended as an introductory history lesson for young children and doesn't go into in-depth details, but lays the basis of his personality and endeavors. Reasons for the wars were presented to the young reader, as well as the troubles of becoming the first president.

If you have a younger reader, then this series is a gem. Done in a easy-to-understand format, the author does a excellent job of providing the right amount of information about each president. Done with both houmours illustrations and paintings, this book is thin enough it shouldn't put off reluctant readers. A great addition to anyone's library!
