Thomas Edison always loved learning. When his mother pulled him out of school to homeschool him, he spent hours reading through books in the library, creating experiments at home and on the job, and learning about the new invention, the telegraph.

Introduce young readers to the "wizard from the start" through this enchanting picture book--let them see how their work, interests, and education now can continue to help them in the future! 32 pages, hardcover with dust jacket.

Joe and Bob Switzer were very different brothers. Bob was a studious planner who wanted to grow up to be a doctor. Joe dreamed of making his fortune in show business and loved magic tricks and problem-solving.

When an accident left Bob recovering in a darkened basement, the brothers began experimenting with ultraviolet light and fluorescent paints. Together they invented a whole new kind of color, one that glows with an extra-special intensity-Day-Glo.
