About The Book

Get to know George Washington as a kid and discover what made him the ultimate all-star in American history.

George Washington was the first President of the United States, the commander-in-chief of the Continental Army during the American Revolutionary War, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. But what was he like as a kid?

In this narrative biography, you’ll learn all about George Washington’s childhood, from his birth in Virginia on February 22, 1732, to his boyhood on a farm near Fredricksburg and later at Mount Vernon, to his relationship with his older brother, who was like a father to him. Find out what George did for fun—and what prepared him to eventually lead a new nation.
