Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The life of Alexander Graham Bell, who invented the telephone with John Watson, is presented in this entry in the "First Biographies" series. The text is easy to read and there are plenty of photographs and illustrations of Bell, his family, and his invention. Although the book only offers a brief look into Bell's life, readers still learn interesting facts that may inspire them to learn more about the inventor, such as the fact that Bell's mother was deaf but, nonetheless, taught him to play the piano. There is a vocabulary section at the end along with a list of other helpful books and Internet sites about Bell. An unusual feature of this book is the timeline, which has an unconventional format. The timeline runs across the bottom of each page and marks important dates as they occur in the narrative. This book is for beginning readers. 2003, Pebble Books/Capstone Press, Ages 5 to 7.
