Series Review:
Inventors and Innovators
"These
well-designed books present information in a succinct and uniform manner. Each
chapter presents a two- to four-page biography and usually includes an
accompanying portrait with a caption, in chronological order by year of the
featured individuals' births. An introduction and conclusion offer more insights
into each book's focus and will assist youngsters with making connections among
entries."
