George Did It


George Did It by Suzanne Tripp Jurmain is one of the books nominated for the 2009 Monarch Award. It's an entertaining account of the George Washington one doesn't usually read about in the history books. Did you know that he first rejected the presidential nomination? Or that he preferred brown suits because he wanted Americans to know that the president was a plain, ordinary citizen like everybody else? This picture book is the perfect reading material for Fourth of July so check it out!
