In this lyrical book, George Washington comes alive for preschoolers. Bright, appealing artwork and simple text introduces the youngest readers to our first president with engaging anecdotes, beginning with how young George liked to study and ride his horse. Fun facts at the end—such as that Washington’s image can be found on our dollar bill, our postage stamps, and on Mount Rushmore—round out this charming Little Golden Book.
