Very well-done introduction to George Washington for a young reader. This book goes more in-depth than a history textbook would have done, and still remains approachable.
I got a good laugh out of the implication that Washington married Martha Custis because he liked her children - then again, it may have been true. I also liked that the notes in the back mention that Washington was a slave-owner, and don't let him off the hook for it.
