Read full description of the books:



I went to our local library looking for a few President-themed books to read with our girls during Presidents' Day weekend. I found a few picture-book biographies and I'm sure they will serve their purpose. Perhaps they'll even be great. But then I looked for a book or two about an American President that might be a fun, interesting, even whimsical read. One that didn't necessarily tell the whole story of his life (I am a bit frustrated right now that I can only use the masculine pronoun; someday, hopefully in my lifetime, that will change!), but perhaps tells a fascinating story about something that happened during his life. This book does that exceedingly well.

We live near Mount Vernon and have visited the estate. Our girls have learned much about President George Washington at school and from books we've read. So I didn't want to read a plain old biography about him. Ho hum. This story explains his love for animals and an honorable deed he did on the battlefield, when one of the enemy's dogs was inadvertently left behind. We had never heard this story before and it certainly gave us a greater insight into the man's character.

The illustrations in this book are colorful and complement the narrative nicely. The story isn't too long or overly detailed, so it's great for independent reading by elementary school-age students or with a parent. So many children are animal lovers that this book offers a way for them to feel a connection to one of the founding fathers of our nation. We really enjoyed reading this book together and I will continue to search out books like this for our future studies of important people in history.
