This book is fun; it has good pictures and steps. I read this book several times because I liked that it teaches me how to make the project and who invented it. This is a nice book for science projects.
What an interesting book to read! We learned things, too. We especially liked how the book offered hands-on activities to make inventions more relevant to kids. This IS a good book for elementary-school science projects.
