George Washington Leads the Way
GEORGE WASHINGTON LEADS THE WAY
This comic brings “The Father of Our Country” alive again in a funny and colorful adventure that uses the first president’s life to teach lessons in leadership. Lead your own reluctant readers to Washington’s lessons about Honesty, Perseverance, Responsibility, Innovation, Integrity, Bravery, and Fairness. (The chapters in this biography follow those seven leadership themes.)
The book covers Washington’s life from birth to death and is the first graphic novel from me to focus on one historical figure exclusively. It is based on the research and storytelling power of the staff at Mount Vernon, Washington’s home on the banks of the Potomac River. The staff and I worked together to make a biography you can trust, free of the mythology and errors that crop up in so many books about Washington.
Mount Vernon also asked me to contribute to their own teacher materials for the life of Washington. I love the way their new material came out, so instead of doing my own teacher guide for George Washington Leads the Way, I will send you to the Mount Vernon educators:
