Format: Paperback
I found this book to be well written and easy to read. I was totally blow away by George Washington Carver's life story! This book should be a must read in every classroom, especially for Black History month of February, when children are learning about the minority influences and contributions to the history of the United States of America. I HIGHLY recommend the reading of this book.

I had read his life story in school many years ago(don't remember the name of the book as it would be 50 years ago.) I wanted to learn more about this very bright and inventive man.
I enjoyed the scientific viewpoint, and the information was abundant and precise. Excellent book.

My homeschooled son chose to write a book report on George Washington Carver. This wonderful book is an easy read, truly expresses the life of this world-renowned individual. We read it from start to finish; it's amazing what products Dr. Carver made from peanuts and sweet potatoes!

My son chose this book to do a book report for school. I didn't have to nag him about doing his reading for the report. He enjoyed the story and found the information very interesting. I would definitely buy other books in this series!
