Disclaimer: I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.
YWAM Publishing offered us several choices from their Heroes of History series of books and we chose to review the George Washington book. We chose to review the George Washington book since we are currently studying American history. As a homeschool family for many years, we have always enjoyed the “Heroes of History” books from YWAM Publishing. There are 26 titles offered in the Heroes of History book series to choose from.
My daughter likes the Heroes of History books because:
- They are easy to read
- They cover the whole life of the hero
- They provide good lessons from their lives
One of those lessons that hit me was the following quote from George Washington:
“The prevalence of that pacific and friendly disposition among the people of the United States which will induce them to forget their local prejudices and policies, to make those mutual concessions which are requisite to the general prosperity, and in some instances, to sacrifice their individual advantages to the interest of the community.” – George Washington
In our current society we seem to have lost this. It is amazing how important George Washington was in the founding of our country. He was truly a great leader.
As part of the review I also received the study guide. The Study guide is a PDF that I downloaded.
The study guide has two parts. The first part has quotes, display corner ideas, questions for each chapter, Social Studies, Related themes to explore and Culminating Events. The section on a display corner gives suggestions on how you can set up a display corner of objects related to the life and times of George Washington. Part 2 of the study guide has a fact sheet and some maps.
I really liked reading the YWAM Publishing book on George Washington. I am looking forward to sharing some of the interesting facts about George Washington and lessons that I learned reading the book. I am looking forward to reading more books in the YWAM Publishing Heroes of History series.
