Alexander Graham Bell: Inventor

by Cynthia Fitterer Klingel, Cynthia Klingel

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Although he is most well known for inventing the telephone, Alexander Graham Bell was an innovator credited with the creation of many useful devices. He dedicated much of his life to inventions that could help deaf people speak. He was motivated, in part, by his deaf wife. Additional factors that inspired Bell are also explained in this brief but informative book. The terminology and sentence structure is simple. There is a timeline, glossary, index, and list of recommended sources for further information. Numerous photographs and interesting facts are provided. These make the life and significant achievements of Bell easy for an early reader to understand. His contributions to the fields of aeronautics, anatomy, and physiology led to many discoveries that influence the way people live today. Young readers will be encouraged by this great man's humble beginnings and eventual success. 2003, The Child's World,
