“George Washington Carver, Abraham Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, and Helen Keller are featured in full-color junior biographies that bring inspiring men and women to life. The books are historically accurate and written to inspire a sense of achievement. Grades 3-6” (LearningÒMagazine, Back-To-School 2001 )
“With these two books, Advance Publishing launches its new ‘Another Great Achiever’ series, featuring the life stories of America’s great achievers. In George Washington Carver, What Do You See? we learn about one of our country’s greatest scientists. Born a slave during the Civil War, rejected as a student because he was black, Carver triumphed because of his burning thirst for knowledge—and his ability to see the extraordinary in ordinary things. “Although Abraham Lincoln never experienced the racial discrimination Carver did, his life was marked by personal tragedy and political setbacks. As a child, he lost his mother; as a parent, he lost all but one of his four sons. As a politician, he often seemed washed up. But as the 16th president of the United States, he became one of the most influential leaders in American History.” (Teacher In Focus, Dec. 97/Jan. 98 )
