5.0 out of 5 stars My son enjoyed learning about Thomas Edition May 16, 2015
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
My son enjoyed learning about Thomas Edition. I, as a parent, enjoyed that book makes references to the fact that Edition and others had made several attempts at inventing a light bulb. I believe that children don't always realize that somethings aren't going to be successful the first time around.

Excellent for ADHD kids to identify with high achieving Thomas Edison who had ADHD. Good to call ADHD The Edison Gene, or some title like that, ot to stigmatize with the word Attention Difficit HyperActivity Disorder. I hate the words Difficit and Disorder when many people diagnosed with this condition are HIGH achievers'

The wording and spacing and the number of lines per page were just right for kids around 9-12 years or younger. The colored pictures added more life and made it more interesting! Would love to get more in the series! It is also great for adults who don't want to read 300 pages to get the essentials.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I gave this as a gift to my 8 year grandson and from the moment he started reading it he couldn't put it down. The information was easy for kids to understand and didn't have to go into too much detail. Kept my grandson interested.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Biography February 20, 2006
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This interesting biography with excellent illustrations and primary source photographs provides facts and fun! An excellent index and table of contents provides easy navigation. The chapters are well-written, beginning with a interest-grabbing first chapter describing Edison's introduction of the electric lights to the public. Historical events and settings build a broad understanding of the lives and times of inventors and builders who paved the way for modern times.
