Did you know that the ice cream sundae was invented because of a law forbidding the sale of ice cream on Sundays? Or that the first motorcycle was really just a tricycle with a motor? Would you believe that Mickey Mouse started out as a rabbit? Arranged in alphabetical order with anecdotal, fun-to-read text, this fascinating book is packed with the stories behind these and over 100 more inventions.

The Kid Who Invented the Popsicle is a good informational book because it gives you a lot of really fun facts about things we eat, drink, play with, and use every day. They may just be fun facts but this book also shows that even mistakes can be transformed into something better than you originally planned.
1: I would use use this book in the class room if we were creating something in for science or something
2: I would also use this book to encourage students to try knew things and be creative, because it's okay if they fail.
