Description - Big George: How a Shy Boy Became President Washington by Anne Rockwell

A boy from Virginia becomes the first president

Before he was the face on the dollar bill, George Washington was a shy boy with a hot temper. But George had character and adaptability. He taught himself courage and self-control. At an early age, and without really realizing it, George Washington gathered the qualities he'd need to become one of the greatest leaders America has ever known.
Anne Rockwell's prose is dignified, Matt Phelan's illustrations are striking, and the details they reveal about George Washington's early days are fascinating, sometimes tragic, and always moving.

Includes an author's note.
