Read an Excerpt

Every day brought a challenge for young Lonnie Johnson—the challenge of finding space for his stuff. Six Johnson kids were squeezed into their parents' small house in Mobile, Alabama. Lonnie would have loved a workshop of his own, but there just wasn't room. There was nowhere to keep his rocket kits...bamboo shooters...rubber-band guns...Erector set...go-kart engine...bolts and screws and other spare parts his dad let him bring in from the shed, and various other things he'd hauled back from the junkyard.

My five year old loved this book. It's such a great story of engineering and inventing. Great for your school library and your STEM program or PBL environment.
