Overview

George Washington Carver worked to become a top agricultural scientist-and used his knowledge to better the lives of poor farmers.

Fact-filled Rookie Read-About Biographies introduce the youngest readers to influential women and men, both past and present. Colorful photos and age appropriate text encourage children to read on their own-as they learn about people like Serena Williams, Neil Armstrong, Rosa Parks, Anne Frank and many more.

When George Washington Carver grew up, African Americans were not allowed to attend most schools. Yet he never gave up on his intense desire to further his education.
