Imaginative Inventions: The Who, What, Where, When, and Why of Roller Skates, Potato Chips, Marbles, and Pie (and More!)



Discription : Have you ever wondered how chewing gum was invented? Or who made the first roller skates? Or why there are piggy banks rather than doggy banks? Imaginative Inventions answers all of these questions and tells the fascinating stories behind these, as well as potato chips, eyeglasses, doughnuts, high-heeled shoes, the wheelbarrow, marbles, the vacuum cleaner, animal crackers, and more. Written in verse and with illustrations full of offbeat characters and quirky details, this book invites young readers inside the minds of great inventors and encourages them to think imaginatively.


More review coming soon.

This book is not what I really ex pected. It's in a drawing/cartoon form. I was going to give it to my father-in-law for Christmas, but instead, will be giving it to my step-son. It does have neat inventions.

Did you know that there was life before Frisbees?
How long do you think doughnuts have been with us?
Who wanted the first pair of eyeglasses?
What about those Flat-Bottomed Paper Bags in which your parents bring home groceries?
Why did the passion for chewing gum stick?
Exactly how did the vacuum cleaner start sucking up dirt?

Questions, questions, odd & silly
answered in poems both factually & frilly!

A good book to start you wondering about how things got started & why.

This book is a must for any parent who wants to stimulate their child's curiosity in the world--and what parent doesn't? The subject matter focuses on everyday items, but provides interesting, little-known facts about these inventions(and probably some fun, harmless fiction). Great for getting kids to start thinking creatively about where the things around them come from, and how big ideas are generated. The illustrations are cute and witty, with spectacular colors. Each invention provides a great launching point for discussion with your children. What more could you ask?

This book was recently listed on the Time magazine web site as one of six "best children's books you've never heard of." The "never heard of" part won't last long...The authors first book (yes, I bought that one too!) is equally thought provoking about children's goals early in life, yet also, charming and sweet.

More review coming soon.

My book arrived soon in great condition and even though I didn't need this book anymore, the service was smooth and hassle-free when I wanted a refund. Thanks a lot!!!

The book I ordered arrived very quickly and in brand new condition. I'm more than pleased & will be sure to order from this seller again! A++++++++++++

After three units in my creative writing course, I still have not been able to finish reading a single chapter of this book because all they talk about are things I already know. Anyone who has ever taken an English class in grade school, jr. high, or high school already knows what is written within these chapters. The literary excerpts must have been selected purely for the sadistic entertainment of the poor soul who was forced to buy this book for any college course, because the only joy I derive from this book is reading the horrid excuses for literature selections out loud to others to watch them squirm. This book is what Satan reads to the inhabitants of Hell as a bedtime story.

The only reason this book gets even one star is because I cannot submit a review with no stars.
