This book teaches children about famous inventors like Thomas Edison and Eli Whitney, and also introduces them to other inventor who may not be as well know, but are equally as brilliant. Kids may be inspired to create their own inventions, no idea is too crazy to try. I’m sure people told David Bushnell that he was crazy to try to make a boat that traveled underwater, but with the help of his brother he invented the submarine. The point is to never give up on your dreams, keep trying, don’t let others talk you out of it, and learn from your mistakes. Some of the greatest inventions ever created exist by mistake! ( )

This book was about many well known inventors such as Thomas Edison, Eli Whitney, and Josephine Cochran. I thought this would be an amazing way to not only cross cut concepts with science and English, but also with history and Engineering. I would love to read this book and then have my students actually invent something that solves a problem. I LOVE READING SCIENCE BOOKS! They get me so excited to teach science all the time and integrate all of the other core subjects. ( )

This book is a wonderful informational text that will help with Social Studies lessons. There are so many lessons that can be created with this book. Teachers can use this book to create different activities for students. ( )

This book is a great book that describes investors to the reader. It really goes deep into history and mentions Ben Franklin, and goes up to the year 1947 with the invention of computers. It has a lot of history going on in the book and mentions a lot of important information. It also mentions common traits among investors.

Use: I would use it for a history lesson about a certain area and pull out chunks from the book. Second I would use it to inspire kids to be creative and do a writing assignment on what they would like to invent.
