Using fascinating stories of early inventors, Amanda has assembled 18 historical stories of various inventors from centuries past. Using stories of these inventors (written in the 1800s), she has developed a wonderful collection that teach not only about the inventors and their inventions, but also about the history of the time, the trials they endured and how they stayed committed to their ideas.

Not a unit study, your student will become familiar with the ideas that were involved in those early days of the Industrial Revolution, enjoying the stories of these men’s lives from boyhood through their adult lives. With many illustrations, from European history to American history, from the scientific basics of flight by balloon to the principles of steam, these stories hold the student’s interest in a way that textbooks cannot approach.  Recommended for 5th – 9th grades.
