Introducing inventions from start to finish, this series educates while it entertains. Teaching about how an invention comes to be and how it influences history and society, these titles help young readers learn about the impact of science and technology on the world through items they are interested in. Colorful pictures, detailed tables of contents, and glossaries of words indicated in boldface throughout the text all entice beginning readers, while a listing of resources for further information encourages the older reader to explore further. ‘Did You Know?' boxes share interesting tidbits of information. While some of the words might be difficult for younger readers, reading with an adult would he helpful. The multicolored pages will help keep children's attention. Lacking in these works, however, are pictures of children, which would lend a more personal interest to the materials presented. Classroom teachers will appreciate the lessons in these hooks, while parents and librarians can read these books with children introducing the world of nonfiction in an entertaining light. Index. Recommended.


Wilson's Core Collection, 2009

The Jaws of Life is a very informative book about an invention that saves countless lives in the automotive world. The book cites past fatalities in automobiles that could have been prevented if the Jaws of Life was available. It also gives basic information about hydraulics so that readers can grasp the concept of how it works. The book has easy to read text, but sometimes the format is difficult. For example: the Quick tips box appears in the middle of a sentence and the reader loses the flow of the information. Recommend.
