Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This biography about Carver, a scientist best known for popularizing crop-rotation and the peanut crop in the United States, is a rare find. Well-written biographies on great African Americans are hard to come by, and herein lies the strength of the book. The story of Carver s life, from the time he was a young boy, is well documented by the authors. The simple text and the black-and-white photographs that accompany it make this book eminently suitable for early elementary students. Like all good reference books, this one also includes a timeline, a glossary, a bibliography and a list of websites to search for more information. Teachers and librarians will find this book invaluable.
