This may be my favorite of all the books about presidents I've ever read It's cute and funny and has some terrific lines that will fly right over the heads of its intended audience but that I loved When his older brother instructs him in his schoolwork George mutters Tyrant under his breath Love itGeorge wakes up the morning of his seventh birthday and wishes himself a happy birthday which is good because it seems no one else remembers His mother serves him breakfast without a word about his special day his older brother insults him over his lessons and his father makes him work in the orchard Along the way some of the myths we've always heard about Washington are addressed and insets tell the truth behind the stories There is a one page appendix written in the voice of Washington that summarizes what is true and what is not in the book This book would make a terrific addition to elementary studies of Washington and the presidents Very well written and lots of fun too
