The Little Plant Doctor: A Story About George Washington Carver

If a flower drooped, George asked, "What's the matter? Too much sun? Too little sun?" He moved some plants from sun to shade and others from shade to sun. Nicknamed the Little Plant Doctor, George would try to find a remedy. Told in the voice of an old tree at the George Washington Carver National Monument in Diamond, Missouri, this fictionalized biography provides an introduction to Carver's early life.
