Introduce children to the exciting true stories of heroes of history.

The patriots pushed on across
the river Delaware
and into Pennsylvania feeling
hunger, cold, despair.

As Christmas neared, the patriots
all wanted to go home.
Their shoes were worn; they had no capes;
they shivered to the bone.

Hungry, cold, and discouraged in the battle against the mighty empire of Great Britain, America's patriots were led on to victory by General George Washington (1732-1799). When the War of Independence was won at last, a new land of liberty required a new kind of leadership. The people of the United States of America chose their hero, George Washington to be their first president. George accepted, and he led the young nation not as a king but as a servant who willingly gave up his power when his service done. For this remarkable act, even Great Britain's king said, "George is the greatest character of this entire age."

Whether reading for themselves or being read to, children love the captivating rhyming poems and unforgettable color illustrations of the Heroes of History for Young Readers series.
