Product Description

Edison is most famous for inventing the incandescent lightbulb, but at his landmark laboratories in Menlo Park & West Orange, New Jersey, he also developed many other staples of modern technology. Despite many failures, Edison persevered. And good for that, because it would be very difficult to go through a day without using one of his life-changing inventions. In this enlightening book, Gene Barretta enters the laboratories of one of America's most important inventors. Recommended for ages 6 to 10 years.

Editorial Reviews

...useful tool to introduce history and inventions to reluctant readers or students…
An entertaining, enlightening intro.
[This] accessible and informative account [is] a worthy successor to Barretta's other men-and-ideas books.
A glowing tribute to the inventor who continues to influence modern life.
Barretta's warm and funny watercolors create an inviting portrait of an influential man...
This accessible introduction will inspire children to look closely at the world around them and come up with some creations of their own.
While teachers are sure to reach for this entertaining resource again and again, the humor, illustrations, wordplay and story are strong enough that casual readers will pick this up, chuckle and even (gasp!) learn.
