Books for Children on the First President
Every year on Feb. 22, we celebrate the birth of the man who would become our nation’s first president. George Washington was born on Feb. 22, 1732 in Westmoreland County, Virginia. He would go on to live a fascinating life--as a farmer, a surveyor, a military leader, and then the first president of the United States of America. He would also set many precedents our country still uses today--including term limits--and is a frequent topic of study in schools.
