Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Unlike many books for young readers where the new words are listed in a glossary at the end of the book, this one presents the new words on the opening spread along with a table of contents. At the age of fourteen Philo Farnsworth had already conceived of television. He was intrigued by electricity and read about electronics in popular magazines to the point where he was able to fix the family farm’s electrical equipment. He told his high school science teacher about his idea and he kept working on it. When he was twenty he had built a TV system. He was paid by a company for his design. In 1971 a TV had about 100 parts that Farnsworth had developed. From then on TV just took off and even the first walk on the moon was broadcast on TV. Farnsworth’s invention had gone all the way to outer space. He, like me, thought that most of what was on TV was a waste of time, but today most homes have TVs and there are thousands of shows, movies, and more available to watch. The book closes with an activity, references to other books and web sites, and an index. While short and sweet, there is a great message about the man who never stopped pursuing his dream. Farnsworth is certainly an individual to be emulated. Part of the “I Like Inventors!” series. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot; Ages 5 to 7.
