More About George Washington Carver by Renee Taft Meloche; Bryan Pollard
 
 
 
Overview
George Washington Carver: America's Scientist tells all about a fascinating man and brilliant scientist who gained the respect of a nation in a time when attitudes were changing about race. Born into slavery, George Washington Carver found freedom in education, learning everything he could about the world around him. He set out from home, alone, in search of a formal education. Overcoming poverty and prejudice, he grew up to be one of the best scientists in the nation. George believed that God had a purpose for everything He created, including the peanut. He discovered many, many uses for peanuts through brilliant experiments. He was even called "Mr. Peanut Man." George's discoveries would help thousands of farmers escape poverty, a perfect reward for a man who simply wanted to use his creativity and knowledge to help others. This book is part of the Heroes of History for Young Readers series which captivates younger children with rhyming poems and unforgettable color illustrations.
