Most people today know George Washington because his head is on the money we use and because there are memorials to him across the country (including his face on Mt. Rushmore and the towering Washington Monument in Washington D.C.). There are counties and cities named after him, and children hear almost unbelievable stories about this impressive man.
You may know Washington’s name, but perhaps you've wondered, "What's so great about him?”
This book (part of the “What’s So Great About…”) series, gives kids insight into life, times and career of Washington.
