George Washington Carver didn’t invent peanut butter–but, he did make it popular! In addition, he found more than 300 other uses for peanuts, including candy, soap, and even medicine. His humble roots as an enslaved person didn’t stop him from becoming a successful agricultural researcher and teacher, introducing crop rotation to the American South and saving the Southern economy when the boll weevil decimated cotton crops. This volume highlights the invention of peanut products in the context of Carver’s extraordinary life for young readers.
