Henry Ford: The Car Man

by Carin T. Ford

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
A simple, well-written biography on the life of a man whose name is an American icon, this book will familiarize readers with a time before automobiles and engines. Early in the book Henry Ford is presented as a real child: playful, mischievous, and curious. His taste for invention, perseverance, and dedication to his work become evident in his later years. The layout of this volume of the "Famous Inventors" series is particularly pleasing. The book is divided into five brief chapters. The large print allows the book to be informative without being intimidating. Well placed graphics, drawings, and photographs add to the reader's understanding of Henry Ford's inventions in their various stages. The table of contents, timeline, glossary, resource section, and index make this a useful reference book on one of America's great inventors. Henry Ford is known by his name, but few people may be aware of how and why his name became known across America. This book introduces readers to the thoughts, motivations, and actions of a father, husband, and inventor who "never gave up on his dream of building a good, strong car that everyone could afford to buy." 2003, Enslow Publishers,
