Children's Literature - Patricia Williamson
One of many in the "I Wonder Why..." series by Kingfisher Publishers that bring a new reader into the nonfiction world. This book takes a reader through the world of inventions. In addition to informing us of some very interesting inventions they begin the book with what an invention is, or is not. The book has a table of contents with a question for each section and the graphics help to illustrate the text. The questions that start each chapter are meant to engage the reader and make them curious about the invention or topic. Do you know if horses can mow a lawn or if you can fit 1500 books in your pocket? Are you curious why zippers have teeth? All of these and much more will be discovered in this book. Every section is short and informative with fast facts associated in textboxes around the information. Reviewer: Patricia Williamson
