The fifth of ten children, George Washington was a dreamer, a hard worker, an athlete, and a peacemaker.  By the time he was fifteen, he had handwritten for himself the "Rules of Civility and Decent Behaviour in Company and Conversation."  These were his rules to live by.  He could not have known what his future held:  that he would play an important role in founding a new country and become the first leader of the United States of America.

Here, in an intimate first-person telling woven with quotes from his "Rules of Civility," the life of George Washington is presented to engage and inspire young readers.  Mike Wimmer's stunning and carefully researched oil paintings bring George Washington to life on these pages and in our hearts.
