Children's LiteratureGeorge Eastman made photography accessible to everyone by making cameras affordable and easy to use. A hard worker and ahead of his times, he created the Kodak Company and changed the way the world remembers the past.

He also donated money so that children in his hometown would have access to dental care. This title is part of the "Uncharted, Unexplored, and Unexplained" series that explores many of the scientific advancements of the 19th century. These books do not just present science facts, but give every reader, even those not so interested in science, a chance to connect to the topic by providing a history of the person and presenting historical and cultural facts about the time period in information boxes. This book would make a fine resource in any library or classroom since it is an excellent research tool with a chronology, bibliography, glossary, index, and list of other books for further research. 2005, Mitchell Lane Publishers, Ages 9 to 14.
