Margaret McNamara has penned a humorous "mostly true tale" about a young George Washington. Though the truth is stretched a bit here and there, nice little facts can be found in information boxes on each spread.
The story begins with George going to bed on a Friday night being 6 years old, but waking up on Saturday morning and he was seven! That's magic any child can relate to! As George goes about the day, he fears no one in the family remembered that this particular Saturday was a special day.
Full of facts, as well as many myths, this is a delightfully entertaining story that should surely be shared this President's Day! The pen and watercolor illustrations by New Yorker's Barry Blitt add to the humor and charm.
