Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Annie Laura Smith
This timeline addresses the history of inventions and inventors from1 million BC to 2010 and the release of Apple's iPad. The book is divided into sections rather than chapters. Each section covers a definitive historical period, and includes relevant facts of the era and cartoon-like illustrations. The first section is aptly titled, "In the Beginning," and is followed by subsequent time periods. An activity, "Build Your Own Timeline," provides instructions for making a timeline of the invention of an object found in the reader's home. A glossary defines relevant terms. "To Learn More" lists books and Internet sites which provide more information on the subject. An index allows easy navigation through the text. The book is part of the "An Illustrated Timeline" Series which includes: An Illustrated Timeline of Space Exploration, An Illustrated Timeline of U.S. States, An Illustrated Timeline of Dinosaurs, An Illustrated Timeline of U.S. Presidents and An Illustrated Timeline of Transportation. This series provides excellent supplemental information to a history curriculum. Reviewer: Annie Laura Smith
