Founding father George Washington’s boyhood defined our first president—see how in this picture book biography.

As a boy, with the help of his teachers, George Washington created a list of the values of civility that he wanted to live by:

1. When another speaks, be attentive yourself and disturb not the audience.
2. Associate yourself with men of good quality if you esteem your own reputation, for ’tis better to be alone than in bad company.

This richly illustrated picture book is based on that little-known historical document and chronicles George Washington’s life from boyhood to his extraordinary leadership position as the first President of the United States of America.

His name was Theodore, but he is remembered as Teddy. As a young boy, he was a dreamer and a reader and had a curiosity about life he could never satisfy. As the youngest man to ever be president, he led a nation to greatness and he made every day count. Frank Keating's telling of incidents in Roosevelt's rich and varied life reminds readers how one person can make a difference. Mike Wimmer's exuberant paintings make Roosevelt come to life a century after his presidency.
