A 2011 Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People 2012-2013 Children's Crown Gallery Nominee 2011 Growing Good Kids—Excellence in Children's Literature Award Dr. Carver knew everything in nature was connected. Sally is a young girl living in rural Alabama in the early 1900s, a time when people were struggling to grow food in soil that had been depleted by years of cotton production. One day, Dr. George Washington Carver shows up to help the grown-ups with their farms and the children with their school garden. He teaches them how to restore the soil and respect the balance of nature. He even prepares a delicious lunch made of plants, including "chicken" made from peanuts. And Sally never forgets the lessons this wise man leaves in her heart and mind. Susan Grigsby's warm story shines new light on a Black scientist who was ahead of his time.
