about

The inspiring biography of our first president’s childhood years
 
George Washington wanted to be a Virginia gentleman like his brother Lawrence until he got the chance to go on a wilderness trip as a surveyor's assistant. It was a difficult—and even dangerous—journey. At times, George got discouraged, but his grit and determination kept him going. This early trek into the American frontier was a turning point for George, and it proved he was ready for any challenge…from being a general in the Revolutionary War to becoming the first president of the United States!
 
Full-color illustrations. Includes bibliography!
 
“Both writer and illustrator have been so thorough in their renderings of Washington's life that older readers could actually use this book as a starting point for research on George Washington…. A must have for parents and librarians alike.”
Children’s Literature
 
“Both words and art dramatically capture… and chart Washington's personal evolution.”

About the Turning Point series:
 
Sometimes there is a happening in our lives that changes the way we think about ourselves and sends us along a new path. These turning points can come when we are young—thorugh a person we meet, an experience we have, a difficulty we overcome.
 
Since 1789, only a small number of people have been president of the United States. What has made these individuals unique? Was there a turning point in their lives that caused them to change direction and set them on a path that led them to the White House?
