KIRKUS REVIEW

Good elementary factual content plus on-the-scene narration make a companionable and evenly balanced biography of Washington that takes him from the age of eleven, through the familiar incidents of his life. It is standard treatment, with little to differentiate it from other biographies for the age level. As boy, as earnest young surveyor, as a promising soldier with Braddock, as leader of the Continental army and then president, we get a traditional picture of the man.
