I purchased this book for my 9 year old daughter for a Black History Month assignment. This is a wonderful, well written book. My daughter actually enjoyed reading it and writing about Dr. Carson. His life story is a great lesson for children of all ages. He was a poor child, who struggled in school, but thanks to a good mother and hard work he rose to the top of his field. It also teachers through faith anything is possible. I definitely recommend this book.
