Reviews - What do customers think about Story of George Washington?

George Washington  Mar 29, 2008
Who's your daddy? Washington's birthday, February 22, should be a federal holiday. President's Day is meaningless. It is wrong to celebrate Martin Luther King's birthday and not George Washington's. Washington is the daddy, not King. After 9/11, it is clear that there are people in the world who hate the United States and would destroy it. It is time to go to our roots. The creation of the Department of Homeland Security was a step. The Patriot Act was a step. The reinstitution of Washington's birthday as a holiday should be a step. It took guts to break with Great Britain in the late 18th century. Britain owned the 13 colonies. Americans were British subjects. The American Revolution went on six years, ending when Cornwallis surrendered. The United States became a nation in 1776. The electoral college elected George Washington as its first president. Washington came from a family of Virgina planters. He believed in westward expansion and cared about foreign policy. He distanced the United States from England and France and warned against extremism in political parties.

I liked it  Jun 1, 2004
We bought this book, along with several other children's books about George Washington, for our young children. This is by far my favorite among those we bought. It gives a brief overview on a child's level, without offering history in a way that is boring for small children (I thought the other ones were boring, and so did my kids.) pictures are nice, and the book is sturdy. I'm going to buy some more to give as gifts.
