George Washington Carver
by Tonya Bolden




Overview -
A fascinating picture book biography of pioneering American innovator George Washington Carver from Coretta Scott King Honor Award winner Tonya Bolden

Shampoo from peanuts? Wallpaper from clay? Ink from sweet potatoes? With imagination and innovation, George Washington Carver (1864-1934) developed hundreds of unexpected products from everyday plants.

Carver was an exceptionally uncommon man: trailblazing scholar, innovative scientist, pioneering conservationist, and impassioned educator. This book follows his life from enslaved orphan to his student days as the first African American to attend Iowa State College (where he later taught) and on to his work in the field of agriculture.
