A very good book for both black history and plant science. The book is nicely written and allows the reader to get involved in George Washington Carver's life. Highly recommended.

While my 10 and 12 year olds enjoyed reading this short book about George Washington Carver's life, so did I! This book has a lot of pictures, an interesting layout and informative, clear text. I highly recommend it as a biography of Carver for kids!

This book did an excellent job, for young readers, of describing the life of a great scientist. At the least, it should encourage young children to read. In addition, the book is written in such a way that it may inspire some children to study hard, and maybe even instill high ethical standards in a very few.

For my son's first grade curriculum, I had to teach him about George Washington Carver. This particular book was a great introduction into who George Washington Carver is and how he impacted life in early America. It is also a great example of an in depth history report!

I love the way this book is written. The kids enjoy reading it, even though the we knew the information in it. It is pretty basic review of GWC. We ordered the States, Presidents and Chocolate books (Smart About...) after reading this one. Very enjoyable.

I liked the book - bought it for a school reading for In2Books project. There were some contradictory statements - but overall - a good read about a good man.
