Reviews - What do customers think about George Washington -- Soldier, Hero, President (DK Readers, Level 3: Reading Alone)?

Great book for kids with all the facts...  Jun 17, 2004
This short biography of George Washington's live is great for classroom use. Written on a 3-4th grade reading level does not take away from the informational value of this text. The text does not leave out the important details to be found in most documentaries. Negative = the book refers to Washington as "George" through out. This often is a problem with children attempting to construct non-fiction writing pieces.
 
Excellent Intro to the President and the Revolutionary War  Jan 15, 2002
My 4-year-old loves having this read outloud to him. He is fascinated by Washington as a soldier and through this biography has learned a lot about the way in which the revolution led to a new government and country. I would highly recommend this book!
 
Excellent for children and parents alike!  Jan 12, 2002
I purchased this book for my 8-year-old son. However, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this wonderful book was full of interesting facts that even I didn't know about George Washington and the history of the United States. This book kept my son's interest throughout its 43 pages of text, which is a rarity. And it also includes interesting illustrations including a photograph of a set of dentures much like George Washington must have worn (fascinatingly disgusting!). "George Washington: Soldier, Hero, President" provided a learning experience for both parent and child, and should be a valuable addition to anyone's home library.
