I bought this book for my grandson who loves to read, but sometimes gets discouraged by the length of "chapter books."

He loves reading it as it is very kid friendly and as a bonus, gets to learn some new and factual information.

I bought this book for my grandson who loves to read, but sometimes gets discouraged by the length of "chapter books." Most shorter books at this reading level are fanciful fiction. This book is not too long, and it's informational as well. He loved reading about a "real man" who invented a "machine" we use daily.

I have read and re-read this story with my son who loves trying to figure out how things work. It is a good way to take an understanding of how tin cans transmit sound and apply it to how telephones first began.

This was a great book for my class to read aloud. It's easy enough for them to understand and they love being able to tell about a person using expression they can read. Thank you for your prompt delivery.

By Nicola Mansfield on December 28, 2013
Format: Paperback
A very basic easy reader about Bell's childhood and invention of the telephone. His childhood concentrates on his living in Scotland and simply being fascinated with sound. Then the rest of the book specifically deals with Bell's invention of the telephone and its reception at the World's Fair in Philadelphia. Very basic. Remarkably missing is any mention of his mother's deafness, any of his work with the deaf and any note of his Canadian connection.
