Inspirational! This book has been so inspirational to my family and I am sure many other readers as well. It is truly important to know our history and those who have paved the way to help our society grow and be strong. My little one always grabs this book before bedtime and points out the items in the illustration to confirm who invented what. If I could give more than a five star rating I would. Thank you Patrice McLaurin and Dian Wang.


It was a class hit! We love this book! I purchased two, one for my granddaughter's class and one for my granddaughter to keep. Her teacher loved it. She read it to her virtual class then, went around the Zoom asking each student which Inventor would they like thank and why? They learned so much that day.
