Divided into illustrated chapters, this book focuses on George Washington's childhood through his teens. The author focuses on his relationships with his father and step-brother Lawrence (who later wills George Washington Mount Vernon!), his love for mathematics, surveying and the horse back riding. The last chapter details a long surveying trip he experienced as a sixteen year old which fostered respect and confidence in himself (basically turned him into a confident man).
Apparently Ms. George has written a few more picture books about some other presidents and calls them "turning point books". Other presidents she has written about are: Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin Roosevelt.
