Product description


★ "Students will find this title useful for reports, but will also find it a great nonfiction read."—School Library Journal, starred review

★ "Exquisite artwork. . . . Should be included in library collections because of its unusual treatment of George's lifetime achievements."—
Library Media Connection, starred review

"Sprinkling excerpts from his letters and diaries throughout to allow its subject to speak in his own voice, the narrative makes a convincing case for Washington's place as the nation's First Farmer. . . . Backmatter includes a timeline, author's notes on both Mount Vernon and Washington the slaveholder, resources for further exploration and a bibliography."—
Kirkus Reviews
