I really enjoyed this book. One of my favorite things about this book was that it showed how independent kids used to be. Edison bought a horse and wagon when he was seven to sell vegetables. This book taught me a lot. I recommend it to kids between grades 3rd-6th. It is an easy read but is still very educational.
Good educational book about the childhood of Thomas A Edison and how he became one of the greatest inventors of American History. My 4th grade enjoyed it and had to do an oral presentation on this book, he did a great job presenting Tom's childhood.
It may start off unnecessarily shabby for a few chapters, but Thomas Edison: Young Inventor is a true biography, capturing and captivating salutary events of the famous inventor’s lifetime, while also spicing the story up with well-rounded dosages of humor, drama, and down-to-earth reflection.
