Saturday Storytime: George Washington’s Teeth

Amy reads George Washington’s Teeth, written by Deborah Chandra and Madeleine Comora with illustrations by Brock Cole.

The first President’s teeth were famously bad, and a common American folk legend has it that he had dentures made out of wood. This rhyming story has the facts about George’s teeth and what they’re really made from.

After the story, Amy demonstrates how to make an early American-style tricorne hat with a curly wig.
