I went to University Mary Washington (named for George Washington's mother) and this was the perfect book to give my college roommate when her daughter started kindergarten.

My daughter enjoyed it!

I'm not sure how to go about explaining this, as the problem I have with this book
Should be obvious to anyone.I was equally Shocked that other Amazon reviewers revealed this flaw as unacceptable while they did feel certain thAt the grammar mistakes were just Terrible..this author while exposing a will and it's beneficiary, includes
In the gifting land,furniture,farm animals and a slave which shall be
Left from one generation to the next. The subsequent follow up reference to this bequest is that
The recipient of said bequests was not appreciative enough of her good fortune
As well she ought be..nary another mention of this situation , which, in context of a very young intended audience,
Introduces the subject of slavery as a pretty good deal,for which one ought be grateful, and the author leaves it at that!
This is just not the place to introduce the concept of slavery at all, let alone with a fairly good slant. Way to complex
A subject to address in this context. It mAkes slavery sound lighthearted and there really is no appropriate context for doing this. I'm finding this difficult to explain, but I assume that my fellow Amazon book reviewers get the idea..
So not good..

I picked this up at a garage sale and was pleasantly surprised as I read it since I’d seen some negative reviews here. I found it a delightful book and quite funny, though I’m sure George wasn’t always able to laugh at his situation. Apparently his mother was quite the character, yet never in the book was George disrespectful of her. On the contrary, he honoured her. Sometimes Washington seems rather two dimensional, but, by humorously describing the family dynamics, this book makes him seem more human, more three dimensional to me. Though the focus of the book is on his mother, it’s also a nice, brief review for a child of the different phases of his life (Fr.-Indian War, revolution, presidency).

Grandson is five and loves reading these books to learn history

I really appreciated this book. It shows that we are all human and even George Washington had a clingy dependent mother. Whatever flaws he had in his own personality and flaws in his relations, he still found himself being able to cope and acheive. That's a great message to send to readers. It also highlights the dependency women had on men. George Washington's mother was not able to support herself and believed she could not cope.

Poor George ! This book really surprised me. Is this based on facts? Good lesson on contentment. We should all count our blessings, daily. Mrs. Washington had many, yet she was blind to them.I WOULD STILL BUY THIS AS A GOOD EXAMPLE OF CHARACTER TRAITS.
I am a fan of Jean Fritz, but I was disappointed with this book. It portrays Mrs. Washington in a very bad light, selfish, and greedy. While this may be true, I don't feel it is appropriate for this age level. Children this age should be taught to respect adults. If what Jean Fritz wrote about Mrs. Washington is true then I don't mind my children learning about it...when they are a bit older. Although this book was a disappointment, I do recommend other Fritz books such as George Wahington's Breakfast, and Shh! We're writing the Constitution.
