Children's LiteratureDid you know that the arrangement of a keyboard's letters used to be in any order the manufacturer wanted? Did you know a woman invented the material used in bullet proof vests? Did you know that the man for the Nobel Peace Prize is named invented dynamite? Do you know the year that blue jeans were invented? These facts and other interesting information are given in this fun and delightful book. The author has very cleverly written this book for two audiences. The poems are easy for younger readers to understand, while greater detail is given about each invention for older readers. Readers will be intrigued by the specific facts for each invention; they will want to turn each page to see what comes next. The illustrations are beautifully done with precise details and color to make each picture look realistic. Parents as well as teachers will enjoy reading this book to their children. Teachers may want to use this as a supplement in their science classroom or just for fun and interesting reading. 2005, Sleeping Bear Press/Thomson Gale, Ages 8 to 12.
