Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5May 27, 2014FitzysmomIn a world that seems to tell children that they don't matter, this book is a breath of fresh air. The message that what you do today does matter. In fact what you do today will impact tomorrow and all the days that follow.
Most of us learned about George Washington Carver in school. But this book takes us through the ripple effect of his life. It tells about his past and how it affected what he was able to accomplish. It also talks about how his life impacted others and through that millions of people were fed.
Not only is this a great book to be read in your home, it would also be a wonderful resource in your education circles. Andy Andrew's website has some great resources that will enhance your book experience. This book would be a great leaping off point in a study of how you can make a difference in the world.
