TBR Pile: If You Grew Up With George Washington by Ruth Belov Gross; illustrated by Emily Arnold McCully

Synopsis:

This book tells you what it was like to live in Virginia during the colonial times of the 1730's and 1740's.

Details:

Paperback, 64 pages

Published January 1st 1993 by Scholastic Paperbacks

Why I Want to Read This:

I love the way each book in this series presents historical facts in an accessible way. A teacher could easily assign portions of the books in this series to be read and use post it notes or an AVID style of learning with various columns representing topics that students need to master.

It is wonderful to think that this book can help students imagine what our first president's young life may have been like. This goes a long way in helping readers understand the idealistic truths our nation was built on so that they can be informed citizens as they grow and mature.
