I recently spoke with author Tonya Bolden to record her introducing and reading a passage from her book George Washington Carver. Listen to this Book Reading with students as an introduction to George Washington Carver. You will be sure to learn something you didn’t know about this important man.
In this Book Reading, Bolden’s honeyed voice and perfect pace really showcase the following elements of her writing: poetic rhythm and pacing, alliteration, and sense-engaging imagery.
A creative and poetic approach to Carver’s biography combined with a delightful reading voice also make this Book Reading a fantastic reader’s advisory tool for any time of year.
