Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Books in the Genius Inventors and Their Great Ideas series offer colorful, accessible introductions to individual American inventors. Each book features five chapters of text, laid out in wide-spaced lines of fairly large type. Illustrations include contemporary color photos as well as period photos of the inventor from childhood through adulthood. In each book, the back matter has an identical, chapter-length section of advice and encouragement called “You Be the Inventor.” In Laser, Ted Maiman builds on his childhood interest in electricity when he grows up to invent the first laser. While older students will crave more information, books in the series do serve a practical purpose, presenting a simple account of the inventor’s life and work in an attractive format. Some libraries may have volumes on the same subjects from an earlier version of the series, Genius at Work! Great Inventor Biographies. There are updates on the time line and bibliography pages. Caution: although the authors are the same, the books have been retitled. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan
