Autumn’s Rating:


Minimum Recommended Age:



This is the biography of Ben Carson. He struggled in his life when he was young, but one day in church he figured out what he wanted to be - a missionary doctor. He achieved his dream later in life, and is SUPER smart today even at seventy- two years old! He was the first doctor to separate conjoined twins successfully and even went on to run for President!

Never give up and always follow your dreams!

Very little aside from threats from some other kids.
