Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanne Javid
From slave to scientist, to teacher of farmers, George Washington Carver was a hardworking man. As an African American, he was a trailblazer, struggling to overcome racism and using his success to help the lives of poor families. Thirty-two glossy fact-filled pages consist of double-page spreads featuring colorful photos and nonfiction text. The three chapters are introduced in consistent, large blue text and contain a brief description of each photo outlined in yellow. “Fast Facts” are also contained within the chapters and present fun and sometimes little-known facts regarding the man himself. For instance, did you know that George Washington Carver discovered how to make almost three hundred products from peanuts? He loved nature and was called the “Plant Doctor” by neighbors needing help to grow crops on their farms. As part of chapter one, a full-page color map shows the birthplace of Carver. The book is filled with facts; colorful photos; simple, engaging nonfiction text; numbered pages; a glossary; index; timeline; resources, and an “about the author” feature. Age-appropriate vocabulary and font are found. A timeline recaps important moments in Carver’s life and a poem about him is included. A “You Can Be a Leader” feature at the end of the book lists ways the reader can emulate the subject. This series should be considered for use in schools and libraries. Part of the “Rookie Biographies” series, other titles include Neil Armstrong, Walt Disney, Amelia Earhart, Steve Jobs, Martin Luther King Jr., Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama, Jackie Robinson, Harriet Tubman, and George Washington. Very nicely done. Reviewer: Suzanne Javid; Ages 5 to 7.
