I read this to my first graders this week as a way of introducing our study of George Washington Carver. I liked this book best out of the many children's biographies of him available at the library because of it's relative brevity and a good-for-first-grade text to picture ratio, as well as its serious, respectful, and level-appropriate treatment of the tougher issues of slavery and discrimination.

This is a great book about George Washington Carver. It has many pictures and it’s not hard for younger students to understand. I would use this book when teaching about plants and how plants are used in everyday life. I would use it for showing how scientists observe plants. This book could be used for teaching kindergarten through fourth grade.

6/15/11 ** Picture book biography; does an excellent job portraying the behaviors of scientists as it describes Carver's curiosity and passion for solving problems to help others.
