I promised to share a few of my favorite books on George Washington so here they are. Most of the items listed are found in the non-fiction or biography section of the library. That being said, I hope that you will check a few out and give them a try. Almost all the book on this list uses a picture book format, which children typically enjoy. The illustrations make a factual subject like history fun and inviting. By presenting information in this manner, it becomes more like a story. In return, children can better relate to the person or subject that is being presented.
