The books in this section are usually hardcover and in decent condition, though we'll sometimes offer hard-to-find books in lesser condition at a reduced price. Though we often put images of the book with their original dust jackets, the copies here won't always (or even often) have them. If that is important to you, please call ahead or say so in the order comments! 

This story of Washington, simply told and charmingly illustrated, introduces him to children still too young to read the author's outstanding George Washington's World. It is not a rewrite of that book, but a completely new story, telling the events of Washington's life with interest and drama, omitting stories now known to lack authenticity.

It is based on the latest research available, and the illustrations give a complete picture of Washington's life at various periods. Children will delight in looking into Mt. Vernon, and viewing the grounds with the President and Nelly Custis.
