    "Curious" George Washington Carver.

    Curious is one adjective to describe George Washington Carver, and his curiosity assisted him to become one of our great scientist. This book offers a re-telling of George's life and works. You will learn who George's guardians were and how he obtained an education in the 1860s. Also, you will read about some of the nicknames given to George. Here are a few questions you will find the answers to in this book: At what age did George go to college? What talents did George Washington Carver have? What plant did he turn into 300 different items we still use today? Can you make an entire meal from one plant? Why is it important to rotate crops? These are just a few of the many questions you will find answered in this book along with many interesting facts about the life of G. W. Carver. Here is an excerpt from the book: "A baby born with no hope for the future grew into one of the great scientist of his country."

    I still remember this book from my childhood

    This was the first book I ever read. I was seven and a fellow student at my small country school taught me to read using this book. I read it dozens of times, and I still remember it. Still have the copy I bought of it back then as well.

    What Sara thinks

    It told interesting facts that kids can understand. It was a short but detailed story of George Wachington Carver's life. Jesus Saves!
