George Washington Carver DVD - Review

What do you know about George Washington Carver?

Yes, he is The Peanut Man.  Anything else?

Then, I definitely recommend you get a copy of Marshall Publishing's DVD entitled George Washington Carver:  His Life & His Work

 © 2009 Marshall Publishing & Promotions, Inc.
A Kaw Valley Films Production
KVFD-106 Length Approx: 30 Minutes
ISBN 978-1-9636134-12-0 UPC 894190001868

Compiling a list of over 300 uses for peanuts and the by-products of peanuts, it is no wonder why George Washington Carver's great claim to fame is peanuts.  However, we would all be naive and sorely mistaken if we truly believed this to be all that defined the man.  Upper elementary students through adults will glean much from watching this DVD.  You will be moved by Carver's great victory over unfavorable circumstances and periods of trial including:  slavery, the loss of his parents, health concerns, poverty, and the prejudices and stereotypes that polluted the South following the abolition of slavery.   

As parents, I believe, it is important to provide our children with real-life examples of people who have triumphed over adversity and made a reputable name all with integrity, hard work, and determination.  George Washington Carver serves as such an example.  He exhibits the character traits I desire to see in my kids.  His inspiring story is full of hope. 

January 5th is the annual George Washington Carver Recognition Day.  This DVD would be perfect to view each year as a great reminder of the results of dedication, a positive attitude, and education.  In addition to viewing the 30 minute program, a study guide and discussion questions can be found HERE.
