I loved this book so much, I ordered one from Amazon to send directly to friends of mine whose (now grown) sons have a love of tinkering.
I would liken this to Hadfield's "Darkest Dark" in that I could see this inspiring a kid to pursue similar dreams. (My nephew is all about being an astronaut at the moment). It's illustrated but there's more reading than in a typical picture book, and it focuses on the positive message of overcoming challenges. A good book for someone with interests in tinkering.
After seeing him interviewed on CBS Sunday Morning, I decided to read this one with my afterschoolers. It inspires kids to follow their dreams, keep experimenting, and never give up! My kids also appreciated that he is a "modern day" inventor, not some guy who died hundreds of years ago.
Do you like to take things apart and find out how they work? Maybe you'll be an engineer one day. Meanwhile, read the true story of Lonnie Johnson, the NASA engineer who invented the Super Soaker! What super fun things can you create?
Just in time for summer: Ever wonder who invented the Super Soaker? Now there's a children's book all about him. Check it out, but try to keep it dry.
