A young boy, George Washington Allen, wants to know what George Washington would have eaten for breakfast. He knew many things about George Washington already, but not his breakfast menu. When his (the younger George) grandmother promises to prepare the same breakfast he (the older George) would

have eaten, George Allen starts a journey to find out.

This was a very funny and informative story. I enjoyed it. I think it shows what a child can do if determined enough.

This book is filled many smaller facts about George Washington, some many students would not know. It shows how much can be accomplished with research and tenancy.

This story is a fun and interesting way to learn about George Washington. It would be a great one to read for 3rd or 4th grade unit on biographies but doesn't make a great read aloud.

breakfast. The book takes the reader through his adventures trying to discover what President Washington had for breakfast.
This book would be great for a unit on the presidents. I like that is coming from a random thought, “What would George Washington eat for breakfast?”

this book is uses alot of actual history and facts and throws in a fun twist to it.

I would use this book in a unit studying the presidents of the united states and have students create there own fact books about a president of their choice.
