George Did it
Dutton Children's Books, 2006 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 40 pages
George Washington was not afraid of responsibility. When the Colonies needed a commander-in-chief to build an army, George did it. And when they needed his army to fight the British, George did it. But when Americans asked George to be the first president of the brand-new United States, he politely said,"NO, THANK YOU." Here is the whimsical story of how our first president tried to avoid his most important job. Filled with little-known and funny facts, this book reveals a more personal side of Washington—a great leader who could also be a little nervous.
