Author Darcy Pattison recommends The Many Faces of George Washington: Remaking a Presidential Icon by Carla Killough McClafferty. “In this biography-plus, McClafferty shows the science behind Mt. Vernon creating wax statues of George Washington at three time-periods in his life. The combination of biography and cutting edge technology makes for fascinating reading.”
The Many Faces of George Washington: Remaking a Presidential Icon (Carolrhoda Books, 2011) is recommended for ages 10-13.
