I liked this book because it heads each section with a student question. Each question is then answered in the following pages. The great thing about the answers is that they are relevant to students lives today. This novel includes questions like what did George Washington do for fun? and then it provides answers like jumped rope, hung out with friends, rode horses--things that makes an important President relative to present day students.

Good information for the time period. Would use again for a resource. Used during week 5 classical conversations; George Washington.
