My child has been reading this series for a while so idecided to check it out. I read it with him and we both thought it was a god book. The only thing i dont like is how short it is. It says its 4 a 3 rd grader but i think it for first.

This is a great book for first and second graders.I like how it explains Steve Job's life with detail.It uses expression to feel how Steve treated his workers.It ends telling the reader how important his inventions are to the world and how people remembered him.

But dont get the sample. It dosent even give you an actual sample of the book. And also we will all miss Steve for what he's given to the world. The full book's great too.
