When Washington Crossed the Delaware: A Wintertime Story for Young Patriots
By Lynne Cheney
Illustrator Peter M. Fiore
Publisher Simon and Schuster Books for Young Readers

Lynne Cheney continues her mission to bring stirring stories and tales of the heroes of the United States to children with When George Washington Crossed the Delaware. This beautifully illustrated picture book tells the tale of a bleak time in the war for America's independence. Children will be inspired by the courage, determination, and intelligence of America's Continental Army as they succeed in defeating the greatest army in the world despite overwhelming obstacles, a victory that would give Americans the hope to continue their struggle to preserve their newly declared independence.

Washington's deeds of heroism will inspire a new generation to determine to fight to preserve America's freedom and help them understand how precious it is. Text, illustrations, and well-chosen historical quotations animate the historical figures. Washington's crossing of the Delaware took place during Christmas and was designed to surprise enemy forces. Reading this book at Christmas or any bitterly cold winter day will give children an added perspective on the travails and the sacrifice of the American soldiers.
