Book Review
Henry Ford--Young Man with Ideas

Questions, questions, questions! That's all little Henry Ford did, was ask questions. Well that "little boy" became one of the smartest men alive and he changed the way people travel around the entire world.
This book was honestly one of the best books I have ever read. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would definitely give it a 10! I couldn't possibly put it down. I would highly recommend this book to kids who have interests in inventions and want to learn about the fascinating life of Henry Ford. The book starts out when little Henry is turning five years old and expands to the rest of his life. This book tells about Henry's fascination with learning how things worked at an early age. Henry was always taking toys apart to see how they worked. One day he was given a broken watch. You would have thought he had been given his favorite candy. He had the watch fixed in no time! He was a curious boy with a smart mind. The book later tells how he becomes a multi-millionaire by manufacturing cars. Henry wanted to "build a car that everyone could own." He soon did and this car became known as the Model T. This book easily inspired me and could inspire other young children to push for their goals and dreams, and to never give up, no matter what happens.

I would like more detail like on how he was born and when he died. I like this book because it talked about all his jobs and what he made and when he made it.

I read this book 32 years ago in 6th grade and it was the 1st book that I actually could not put down. I fortunatley had a great 6th grade english teacher that noticed my interest in mechanical contraptions but that I disliked reading, so she set this book on my desk and asked that I use it for my book report assignment. After that book I have been hooked on reading. As another reviewer stated..... "This book easily inspired me and could inspire other young children to push for their goals and dreams, and to never give up, no matter what happens.".... that is easily the most important part of the book

Other reviewers have disliked the lack of dates..... THAT'S THE BEST PART!!!!! This book is the "lure" to learn more about Henry Ford, thank goodness that it was not weighed down with dates. I hope all Teachers and Parents that have that rebelious kid in class that dislikes reading but is into cars considers this book. I recently purchased a copy for my son with the hope that it has the same effect as it did on myself 32 years ago.

On a side note, the Childhood of Famous Americans series of books had many great titles that have slowly faded away. On the same theme as the Henry Ford book there is "WALTER CHRYSLER Boy Machinist", and another interesting title was "FW WOOLWORTH Five & Ten Boy" and they both have that "push for their goals and dreams, and to never give up, no matter what happens." theme running throughout. These were 1960's copyrights but you can still find them if you look for them, keep your kids inspired!!

I liked the book, but I wish they had more dates than just when he was born. It would have been fun to know how old he was when he did or invented certain things. I think I am like him because I like to find ways to make work easier.
