From award winning author Margaret McNamara and New Yorker artist Barry Blitt comes this partly true and completely funny story of George Washington's th birthday In this clever approach to. This may be my favorite of all the books about presidents I've ever read It's cute and funny and has some terrific lines that will fly right over the heads of its intended audience but that I loved When his older brother instructs him in his schoolwork George mutters Tyrant under his breath Love itGeorge wakes up the morning of his seventh birthday and wishes himself a happy birthday which is good because it seems no one else remembers His mother serves him breakfast without a word about his special day his older brother insults him over his lessons and his father makes him work in the orchard Along the way some of the myths we've always heard about Washington are addressed and insets tell the truth behind the stories There is a one page appendix written in the voice of Washington that summarizes what is true and what is not in the book This book would make a terrific addition to elementary studies of Washington and the presidents Very well written and lots of fun too

George Washington's Birthday A Mostly True Tale is a children's picture book written by Margaret McNamara and illustrated by Barry Blitt It is a biographical picture book of George Washington As today is the Washington's Birthday 22 February I thought it would be apropos to read this bookGeorge Washington was an American political leader military general statesman and Founding Father who served as the first president of the United States from 1789 to 1797 Previously he led Patriot forces to victory in the nation's War for Independence He presided at the Constitutional Convention of 1787 which established the US Constitution and a federal government Washington has been called the Father of His Country for his manifold leadership in the formative days of the new nationMcNamara's text is simplistic and informative McNamara serves up delicious ironies and she also sets the record straight with asides labeled Myth and Fact Blitt chronicles George's slow burn in his elegant irreverent ink lineThe premise of the book is rather straightforward It's George Washington's seventh birthday but he can't get anyone to acknowledge it His mother misses his hint and his stern father isn't cutting him any slack Eager to observe his birthday but thwarted throughout the day George studies with older brother Augustine spends a bored few minutes heaving rocks across the Rappahannock helps his father prune the cherry trees with disastrous results and finally celebrates at dinner with his loving familyAll in all George Washington's Birthday A Mostly True Tale is a wonderful children's picture book about George Washington celebrating his seventh birthday which everyone forgets The connection between the boy the future general and the president was done rather nicely
