Martha Washington

by Candice Ransom


Quick Overview

The story of Martha Washington's adult life is told in simplistic sentences set in large type and accompanied by a soft watercolor painting on each spread. The book begins with her marriage to Daniel Parke Custis and takes readers through her life with her second husband, George Washington. There is no information about her early years, where she was born, or her family. Her birth date is not mentioned in the text but is included in a chronology at the end.


On My Own Biographies introduces beginning readers to some of history's most interesting and important people. These books focus on the pivotal episodes that show what kind of person the subject is (or was) and how he or she came to be famous. Each book is written in a story format but is not a fictionalized account. A chronology of major events follows the story, along with a brief summary of the subject's life. Martha Dandridge Custis was twenty-years old when she married George Washington. She worked by her husband's side to help keep their family, home, and country running smoothly. Whether she was at a ball or on a battlefield, Martha Washington set the standard for all future First Ladies with her quiet determination and courage. Size 0.14" H x 8.34" L x 6.38" W, 48 pages
