I have a 9-year old that is either way about books, but REALLY into science, invention, and experimentation. This book HIT THE MARK! for him. Great stories on how every-day inventions were actually initially errors, turned into successes. Great life lessons in this. I bought copies for my favorite teachers and kids.
