Introduce children to the exciting true stories of heroes of history.
George soon was known throughout the States
 as "Mr. Peanut Man."
The farmers started living well
 on their productive land.
Increasingly George gained respect
 from black people and white,
the northerner and southerner,
 the rich and poor alike.

Born into slavery, George Washington Carver found freedom in learning everything he could about the world around him. In fact, as a boy George had so many questions that he set out from home alone to get an education. Overcoming poverty and prejudice, he would grow up to be one of the best scientists in the nation.  George believed that God had a purpose for everything He created, including the peanut--purposes he discovered through brilliant experiments. George's discoveries would help thousands of farmers escape poverty, a perfect reward for a man who simply wanted to use his creativity and knowledge to help others.

Whether reading for themselves or being read to, children love the captivating rhyming poems and unforgettable color illustrations of the Heroes of History for Young Readers series.
