George Washington lost alot of his teeth. He started loosing them when he was 22. This book tells all about it. It is a very fun book with lots of rhyming and history all rolled into one. The boys loved this book.
Many people think that George Washington had wooden teeth. Did you know that his teeth were really made of hippopotamus tusk and gold? George Washington's dentist was a very prominent American dentist of that time period, Dr. John Greenwood.
Another book we really enjoyed was So You Want to Be President by Judith St. George This book has lots of cool facts about the Presidents. Not just your common every day facts.

Here is our Presidents lapbook I added a couple of my own components the Presidential Questions and What President Am I Related to? My family is related to President Andrew Jackson (on my mom's side) and we thought this would be a fun addition to our lapbook.
