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.

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!
