  1. The Story of Inventions 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 07/18/2012

    The book we used is the 1992 version with 354 pages. It is in a story form rather than a list of dry facts. The book gives interesting details about the lives of major inventors. Did you know Alexander Graham Bell was born in Scotland? When he and his brother, Melville, were boys, they made a model speaking machine. When they blew into it, the noise coming out sounded like a baby crying "ma-ma." The sound was so realistic that people in the town went looking for a baby!

    This book starts with James Watt and the steam engine and ends with the invention of the computer. The writers of the book show the readers how inventions often come about by building upon other inventions and discoveries. The comprehension questions at the end of each chapter often led to some interesting discussions. A set of tests can also be purchased from Christian Liberty Press that are challenging, because the student must study the chapter for details. I recommend The Story of Inventions, because this book tells how each inventor used his gifts to benefit man.
