Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
If readers know anything about iPhones, iPads, or iTunes they may wish to learn more about the man behind these products by reading this interesting and brief biography. It belongs to the "Rookie Biography" series, along with other amazing people such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Harriet Tubman and Barack Obama. The book describes how Steve Jobs grew up, and his computer interests, as well as where his first computer was built. He and a friend built it as a team project. Readers will discover that Jobs was the first person who added music to Apple computers. These facts and more are explained in the brightly illustrated pages of this book with colored photographs. The text is simple and straight forward and will keep the reader's attention. The Apple computer has been very popular because Jobs kept innovating new and better features . Jobs is perhaps best known for his development of iPhones and iPads, which revolutionized the way people interact with phones and computers. Owners of these devices can hear music and play computer games on them as well. In his lifetime Jobs saw to it that people all over the world would have the computer magic that he designed and made possible. Although Jobs died in 2011 his ideas are still being used and changed the world. A brief glossary is included in the book to help young readers understand some of the terms. A timeline of Jobs's life and an index is also included. Mattern is a prolific writer of more than two hundred books for children. She enjoys writing biographies about real people and real topics. The writing style she uses invites children to discover more about the world of technology that Steve Jobs brought into their lives. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy
