2009 Award
Big George
( by Anne Rockwell/ illus. by Matt Phelan, Harcourt $17 Score: )

Most biographies in picture book form usually focus on a single incident in the life of that person. Anne Rockwell's story of the life of George Washington covers a long stretch of time, from his boyhood days to the time he becomes President. On the other hand, it covers the Revolutionary war in very short order. While the art is handsome, this is more likely a book for school/curriculum than of general interest. 8 & up.
