" You can learn quite a few little interesting tidbits if you pay attention to the small print and the back matter in this book. The illustrations were actually my favorite part, though.The comparisons of what we use now versus how it was based on a T.E. invention could be useful to our first grade teachers who talk about now and then. " said.

" This book is about Thomas Edison and his inventions. Beginning has a brief description of who he is/what he did, and then each spread after shows one of his inventions in his lab compared to "present day." Great illustrations! Back matter includes a list/description of Edison's employees, trivia questions, and a bibliography. " said.

" The format of this book was interesting, although a bit unusual. It connected present-day technology on the left side of the spread with something Edison had done on the right side of the spread. It felt a little clunky at times, but worked! Writing and illustrations are appropriate for budding inventors. " said.

" This is a fabulous book for student to learn about Thomas Edison's inventions and contributions to technology. This book illustrates and discusses Edison's inventions and the current invention that exists to replace his. It is a wonderful book to use for research or to simply teach students not to give up. " said.

" This picture book is packed with accessible and interesting information about Thomas Edison and is presented in a way that helps children understand the impact of a life that lived over 100 years ago. Good emphasis was placed on Edison's failures and how some of them birthed unexpected successes. The illustration is part of the story and leads the reader on journey through Edison's inventions. " said.

" Wonderful biography of Thomas Edison and a few of his inventions and how they have changed how we live now. Includes a note about many of the people who worked in his lab (and who are pictured throughout the book) and the contributions they made. This held all three of my children's attention (ages 6, 9, 11). " said.

" Adorable picture book about Thomas Edison and his inventions, explaining how we use them today or what they evolved into in modern times. Cartoony cute illustrations, with big-headed characters, which include drawings of his real colleagues/employees and lists who was who. Not a full biography of Edison, and tells the story out of chronological order, by invention, in clear simple text. For youngest readers. Has short bibliography and "Thomas Trivia" (the lab had a pet bear cub for a while!). " said.

" I learned a lot about Edison and some of his inventions in this book. I recognized early on that there were similarities to "Neo Leo" (and it is the same author/illustrator). Loved the trivia at the end. And really neat that some of his employees were mentioned and included in the illustrations throughout the book. Fun facts and delivered in an easy way--not too dry and able to connect today's reader (and what they use) to what he did then.2014-2015 Beehive nominee " said.
