"Henry Ford remains a controversial and fascinating giant of Twentieth-Century U.S. If you want to hate him, there's plenty of evidence for doing so. If you want to admire him, there's also plenty of evidence for doing so. Whatever your case might be, Reis's highly readable book is the one to start with. Don't be misled by the title; this is best introduction about the man for both kids AND adults. The photos are generous and involving, and the text always informative and clear. A definite gem!" Patrick Hunter said.
"Henry Ford was a major influencer of our nation and through his inventive drive pushed the world into its future. Most kids know of Henry Ford as the inventor of the automobile, but there was so much more to the man than that. As with anyone, he had his opinion regarding social and economic issues of his day and some agreed with him and others did not.
The depth of information Ronald A. Reis gives regarding the man and the inventor is astounding so that children would understand the whole person. He used wonderful photos and organized his information for easy understanding. The activities he includes are great for interaction for the children to really absorb the life and times of Henry Ford. Highly recommended for teaching children about Henry Ford in a fun and fantastic way!" Melissa said.
