Little Naturalists: George Washington CarverGibbs Smith
Introduce your brilliant baby to George Washington Carver, who was born the son of a slave near the end of the Civil War. As he grew, George worked many jobs and tried many schools to learn everything he could, eventually earning bachelor’s and master’s degrees in agriculture at Iowa State. Then Booker T. Washington asked him to come teach at the Tuskegee Institute in Alabama, an all-black college. George taught and researched there for many years, also creating educational outreach programs to help poor farmers use the land more productively to both take care of the earth and feed people. He is best known for his work with peanuts. Kate Coombs’ engaging story and Seth Lucas’ beautiful art bring George Washington Carver to life for young readers, encouraging little naturalists to Be Adventurous and Be Creative.
