Reviews - What do customers think about George Washington: True Patriot (Heroes of History) (Benge, Janet, Heroes of History.)?
Wonderful! Jul 16, 2008
I bought this to read to my 5 and 7 year old's at bedtime. We live near Mt. Vernon and I thought this book would be neat in order for them to learn more about George Washington. They like it and I am enjoying it as well! Even at their young ages they understand most of it and I've learned much more about him. I highly recommend this book and these authors (I have also read the George Mueller book--great).
Good Book - Poor Grammar Aug 11, 2005
This book (and most others in the Heroes of History series)is chock full of good information and reads easily in a child-friendly format. There are some "dry" areas, but history can be rather dry at times. My greatest concern is the improper grammar that is scattered liberally throughout every book in the series that I have read. I would prefer to give this book 3 1/2 stars.
