    1. Jean Fritz was a children s author with a fascination with writing historical fictions She was born on November 16, 1915, in Hankow, China to missionary parents After living in China for 13 years, Fritz and her family moved back to the United States Beginning her career with an English degree, Fritz became an award winning and respected author She received an honor for every book that she wrote.

    2. Found out that Mother Washington loved making gingerbread and folks enjoyed eating it.She was always asking for money, thought she didn t have enough Brought on by poor lean days of Losing George s Grandfather.

    3. I went to our local library looking for a few President themed books to read with our girls during Presidents Day weekend I discovered this book about our first president s mother and I thought it would be an interesting tale It s an interesting to think about how even an idolized figure like George Washington needed to mind his mother We live near Mount Vernon and have visited the estate Our girls have learned much about President George Washington at school and from books we ve read So I didn [...]

    4. This one is going straight into my recycle bin As a professional historian, I love reading history in any form, particularly one that engages children However, I found this book to be misogynistic and hateful towards Washington s mother Fritz s text shows Mary Washington as being a selfish, delusional woman who sought to control her son s life with her imagined penury and desire for constant attention.If this truly was the case if Washington s mother was really as much of a basket case as this b [...]

    5. I found this transitional text than an easy reader but without chapters to be somewhat dull and altogether bizarre, in terms of it presenting Washington s mother as a stereotypically needy old woman who always wanted her son near yet he increasingly left her on her own as his life goes on In the end, it was a bit of a downer and makes our first present out to be fairly inattentive to his dear mother The misleading cover illustration of young George fishing with his mother appears nowhere in the [...]

    6. George Washington s Mother is a simple non fiction story about George Washington s Mother I can t say I really loved this book Jean Fritz has a no nonsense writing style that I don t particularly care for In this book it came of as a bit sarcastic which I found a little entertaining but I don t think I kid would particularly enjoy this book that much I have always loved non fiction but this book reminds me of the books I was forced to read in elementary school, and hated.

    7. We didn t care for this book at all It made her out to be quite spoiled and demanding, when she was a woman of good character Fritz seems to have an anti Christian tone in some of her books This review was written by Mom.

    8. Who is George Washington s mother Great learning book to learn about George Washington s mother Also has flashcards provided as a resource to review as an activity

    9. Not up the usual Jean Fritz standards I read this book aloud to my second graders I probably won t do that again, though I will have the book available for students to read.

    10. I think it focus s on a specific view point of Washington s mother, Not all writing s that reference his mother are so hard on her character Definitely not a book you can judge by the cover.

    11. Level M Interesting side to George Washington s life It s a quick read that gives kids some background knowledge on George Washington and his mother.
