Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that 2010 has started off on a positive note.
My first resolution of the year was to post on this blog again! The end of 2009 was hectic and emotionally draining so the blog was the furthest thing from my mind. Now that 2009 is over, it’s time for a fresh start.
Though I don’t foresee being able to post as much as I did at the beginning of last year, blogs will at least be posted on a weekly basis whenever possible.
Without further ado, let’s talk about George Washington’s teeth!
Did you know that by the time George Washington became president of the United States he only had two teeth? In this funny picture book, tooth after tooth is lost as George Washington goes off to war, crosses the Delaware and is elected.
When he finally becomes “toofless”, he brainstorms a way to get teeth back in his mouth so he can smile and eat solid food again. Kids will love learning about this side of George Washington’s life. Written in funny verse, this is an engaging way to learn about a human being who struggled with constant pain but never gave up looking for a solution. Additional biographical information and pictures in the back of the book serve to expand the conversation about George Washington.
