Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-6-- Two great biographies for middle grade readers. Although the reading levels are low, the presentation of information about each inventor is clear, precise, and to the point. Highlights of their lives and discoveries are fully covered. Abundant full-color illustrations include color or tinted photographs and drawings. The Bell title includes an activities section with information about tuning forks and how to make a telephone. --Sharon L. Godfrey, Whisconier Middle Sch . , Brookfield Center, CT
