Tos Review: Marshall Publishing- George Washington Craver








Have you ever wanted a dvd of a Historical Person, or event that took place? Something that breaks it down for you to understand, and for your child to get.

Marshall Publishing has done just that with many dvd’s. We were lucky enough to review the one about George Washington Craver. Let me tell you a few things about it.

About the Product:

Name: George Washington Craver: His life and His work on Dvd

For Ages:  4th Grade and up

Length:  Approx. 30 Minutes

Price: $19.95

To Order: You can order them by going to or calling 1-888-300-3455

Now about the Dvd.. It tells the story of the life of George Washington Craver. Which did you know was the Peanut man?? I did not.

My son is in 4th grade, and he really enjoyed this documentary. He was very attentive, and found lots of things fascinating, as did I. The Dvd was very well done, and easy to follow.

Monkey man’s comments about the dvd were. “Mom, there should be more people in the world like him”… “Can you believe he didn’t care about money??” and so on. He really was touched by the fact that a man that came from nothing, was able to find the positive and make his life mean something.

I was impressed as well. A man that stared evil in the face many times throughout his life, and kept such an outlook on life. Inspires me to do the same. Favorite line was something like We should not look for what we can get out of life, but what we can do with out life while here. AMAZING!!

I really recommend this Dvd to anyone who is trying to teach about historical people. Or just to anyone looking for something to beef up the history lesson. They even include a study guide and discussion questions for you to use along with it.

Some of the other Dvd’s that Marshall Publishing offers are…

  • Fire Trucks
  • History of the Oregon Trail
  • Lincoln at Gettysburg: The battle and the Address
  • Lewis & Clark Expedition
  • Lots on Railroads
  • Animals and so MUCH more!!!

Look to see what the rest of the TOS Crew is saying about it!!

*I received this dvd for free from Marshall Publishing for my honest opinion as part of the TOS Crew. All opinions are 100% mine and my monkey’s.
