Abstract:

"This book was written to help supply a demand for good literature for children. George Washington's Boyhood is presented in an attractive and interesting manner that will appeal to the young child and stimulate him in his desire and love for reading. ... An effort is made to present George Washington, not as the timid, stereotyped, perfect boy often held up as an unwelcome pattern for children, but as a normal, fun-loving, healthy child of good habits, with much courage and love for out-door sports, and with temptations like any other boy of his age."--P. [5-6].
