This book, in my opinion could be a book meant on manners as well as a book written for the perfect read aloud. Its very colorful and graphic illustrations caught my attention as well as its integration of George Washington. My only issue with this book is that it does not give too much on the history of George Washington as well as it does not give the reader better picture of what the times were like back then. ( )

I thought that this was a cute story to read, something that young readers would enjoy. I thought that it was interesting that the story had some truth in it, with a modern twist that would catch the readers attention. I am not sure if it really taught children about a historical time in the past, but it was entertaining to read. The illustrations were engaging; and I liked how the end pages told how the book was in reference to what actually happened with Washington's portrait. ( )

Gilbert Stuart's ill-mannered children "entertain" George Washington when he visits to sit for his portrait. Good fun at the president's expense. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0803730381, Hardcover)

Based on the true story behind Gilbert Stuart's famous portraits of Washington, this funny historical read will leave rascals, ruffians, and troublemakers of all ages laughing.

Charlotte, James, and baby John have promised to be on their very best behavior for when George Washington comes to have his portrait painted by their father, Gilbert Stuart. But, it seems like every time George Washington comes to visit, Charlotte has to write another apology letter, even when they try to follow George Washington’s Rules of Good Behavior. If these whippersnappers want any dessert, they are going to have to learn some manners—and fast! What results is a hilarious chain of events, a giant mess…and a painting that will be remembered for centuries to come.
