I found this at a Habitat store and was intrigued to read about this man I know very little about. Those of you who have kids should read it once a year with them until they can tell you the story of this man's life themselves. If I had a child, I would want this man's passion, purpose and endurance to be the goal.
Although this is a biography written for children it was very interesting to read about this favorite man. My favorite quote is the end of the closing paragraph: "He had lived his life to help others and that is the best a person can do."

George Washington Carver discovered lots of ways to use sweet potatoes and peanuts. He actually had three hundred products, like ice cream and shampoo, and peanut oil for your skin. He worked super hard. When he was [...]

It's not where you start; it's where you finish! That adage really does fit George Washington Carver.
