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.

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.

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 love these series. But most important that my son does. I order 20+ books and he loves to read them (usually it is not that easy to make him read). I got mix of 2-3-4 levels for the second grader, second level is too easy, but it creates some fun and he reads them with pleasure. Love it, I would recommend it.
