Good for those desiring rapid and easy reading.

The book reminded me of how much we need to ask God for everything and ask Him to guide me even in the small things.

My son and I read this book this summer for his summer reading program. Not only did my son, who was 7, enjoy the book but I couldn't wait to learn more from our readings. We read the book in two days. I am suggesting this book to his 2nd Grade teacher this year. This is a must to read book!!!

I'm sure this book is great, and I just ordered it. But am I the only person who is baffled, disgusted and outraged that there apparently are NO adult biographies available on this great man? I did a search on biographies on Thomas Edison, one of Carver's compatriots, and the list of those stretches from here to Menlo Park. The fact that I could find more biographies on Joey Buttafuoco than on George Washington Carver says it all about the United States of America. I am acrimonious.

George Washington Carver is one of my favorite people. His life is such an example of perseverance. He took advantage of every opportunity to learn-- under impossible circumstances. It’s a great book to read to 6-8 year olds and then a book for children to read themselves.

My 7 yr old loves this book. I even forgot she has it, till she pops up with interesting facts about the book as quizzes for me. Guess I'll have to read it so I can respond to her. Great learning book for the both of us.
