Publishers Description
For toddlers, mastering new skills is just a part of growing up, but sometimes they may find new challenges trying. That's where Elmo, Big Bird, and their "Sesame Street" friends (including Grover, Zoe, Bert, Ernie, Rosita, and Telly) come in--to show toddlers that when you get stuck, it's OK to ask for a helping hand. This Step 1 Step into Reading emphasizes core "Sesame Street" values of cooperation, friendship, and trying new things. The short rhyming text will prove popular with toddlers just beginning to read on their own.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Father of America's Democracy  Mar 24, 2007
George Washington was born in Bridges Creek, Virginia; father a land speculator and planter, mother an orphan with a comfortable inheritance.
He married Martha Custis on January 6, 1759, but he loved Sarah Cary who married his friend, December 17, 1748. He took up a planter's life on April 6 and on September 1, 1752, joined a lodge of Masons at Fredericksburg. There were no children as he remained in love with Sally all of
his life. In 1779, Count Casimer Pulaski was killed during the battle for Savannah. Many towns were named for him, two in Tennessee and Virginia. In 1789, Washington became president on May 14 instead of "His Highness."

The President's House was on Cherry Street in New York. Washington acted on a spy's report when he crossed the Delaware River. He learned not to enter a confrontation without advance knowledge. However, the patriotsof his day feared the stigma of being looked down on as not being a
gentleman. Everything about being a spy went against the "code." Robert Townsend used his store for espionage because of his antipathy for the Redcoats. Twenty-one year old Nathan Hale was the only hero spy as he was hanged by the British quickly (like Sam Davis in Pulaski in another
American War). The only way to be glorified as a spy was (then) to be caught and executed "on the spot."

He is portrayed as the father of our county in the Pultizer prize-winning 'Founding Brothers' by Joseph J. Ellis who wrote other biographies about Washington. Henry Knox was Washington's Secretary of War. John Hancock. governor of Massachuetts was handsome, trim and vain; he had been promised to be the first Vice President by the Federalists. Washington, D.C. became "Federal City" in 1790. He worked until the end, going to the DC site to see how his capital city was progressing. He inspected his farms daily, the last the day before he died of strep throat infection on December 14, 1797. His will had a provision for a university in D.C. and one of his last letters concerned the creation of an army academy. The Naval Academy at Annapolis came later where Jeff visited during his high school recess one summer. He served as president for two terms. Political joy is one of the strongest emotions of the human mind.
Pretty Useful  Nov 4, 2003
This book is pretty useful for students in elementary school who need to know basic information about George Washington. The only thing I did not like is it did not make specific references to things such as the Revolutionary War, or the Declaration of Independence. The book would discuss these events in Washington's life, but they would not really callthe events by their names.
George Washington  Nov 4, 2003
This book would be a good book to use to share information about George Washington. That is what I used it for. I don't think it would be a book I would just let my students read. There are some messages in the book that you might not want students to know, or some things that you would like to share in a different manner other than a book. Overall though, I did enjoy it!
Meet George Washington  Jun 4, 2000
My seven year old son loved this book. As a beginning reader, he never balked when told to sit and read. It provided a great springboard for discussions for bringing history to life and encouraged a love for history and reading!
