Truman’s Letter November 2017

Hi, Kids!

History is filled with such interesting people! George Washington Carver is just one of them. Carver was an environmentalist, a botanist — a scientist who studies plants — and an inventor. Many people associate him with peanuts, but there were other crops he worked with, too. You can find out more about that in the “Connections” section.
America is not the only country that grows peanuts. China grows them, too. “Wildville” takes us to China to investigate the giant salamander. Can you guess how big it is? Find out in the article!

Do you like to paint? I do. Chinese brush painting is a specific kind of art. It is typically made on scrolls — not paper or canvas like other paintings. You can find out more about it in the “Cultural Connections” section.

What is your favorite thing to paint?
