Big George: How a Shy Boy Became President Washington Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before he was the face on the dollar bill, George Washington was a shy boy with a hot temper. But George had character and adaptability. He taught himself courage and self-control. At an early age, and without really realizing it, George Washington gathered the qualities heandrsquo;d need to become one of the greatest leaders America has ever known.

Anne Rockwellandrsquo;s prose is dignified, Matt Phelanandrsquo;s illustrations are striking, and the details they reveal about George Washingtonandrsquo;s early days are fascinating, sometimes tragic, and always moving.

Includes an authorandrsquo;s note.
