5.0 out of 5 stars A Fine Biography 20 Feb. 2006
By Suzy Red - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This interesting biography with excellent illustrations and primary source photographs provides facts and fun! An excellent index and table of contents provides easy navigation. The chapters are well-written, beginning with a interest-grabbing first chapter describing Edison's introduction of the electric lights to the public. Historical events and settings build a broad understanding of the lives and times of inventors and builders who paved the way for modern times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great biography 3 July 2009
By C. Mayer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this to my six year old son who loved it. There are funny stories from Edison's youth, a chart that shows Morse code and lots of other interesting tidbits.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for kid! It was exactly what he needed without the adult padding! 18 Jun. 2013
By najah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The wording and spacing and the number of lines per page were just right for kids around 9-12 years or younger. The colored pictures added more life and made it more interesting! Would love to get more in the series! It is also great for adults who don't want to read 300 pages to get the essentials.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biographies 3 July 2010
By J. Patterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am very impressed with the "Time For Kids" series. I like how they bring biographical and non-fiction information to young children at a level that is appropriate for them to understand. The photos are great and they cover a wide variety of topics. I bought quite a number of them for my classroom.
