Synopsis: When George Washington Carver grew up, African Americans were not allowed to attend most schools. Yet he never gave up on his intense desire to further his education. Read about how Carver worked to become a top agricultural scientistand how he used his knowledge to better the lives of poor farmers.
From Booklist: For cogent and straightforward early introductions to famous people, you’d be hard-pressed to top the humble yet hardworking Rookie Biographies series. In 32 pages, the books use layers of info—large declarative sentences, smaller fast facts, and even smaller captions—to ease a reader’s path into an ever-deeper understanding. Every spread includes a well-chosen one-page photo that brings the text to life. George Washington Carver is more than “the peanut guy,” as proven by this eye-opening look at his childhood as a slave, his education in agriculture, and his work in improving the quality of farmers’ soil. There’s no real getting into the minds of the subjects, but that’s okay—the facts, the pictures, and the back matter (a poem, life tips, a time line, and more) speak for themselves. Grades K-3. --Daniel Kraus
