LIVING ADVENTURES FROM AMERICAN HISTORY Volume 5 - The Life and Times of George Washington--The Hero That Fathered America, Part 3 - The Presidency

by | Read by Frances Kelley

Children Family Listening • 1 hr. • Unabridged • © 1987

Frances Kelley describes the final chapter in George Washington's long story, which began with his early years as Revolutionary War hero and ended with his election as the first U.S. president. Keeping young listeners absorbed in early American history is a challenge at which Kelley excels. This material, which lacks the drama of action-packed war scenes, could be dull, but Kelley rises to the occasion. By drawing on imagined dialogue (interwoven with famous quotes and memorable scenes), Kelley puts the story of establishing a new country in human terms. Children will learn how our government's structure was decided, how leaders debated over our constitution, and how they created a presidency instead of a monarchy.
