A children’s book exploring inventions (and their inventors) that changed the world. Discover the true stories behind amazing creations, from the Antikythera mechanism, an ancient analogue computer, to the Baghdad Battery. On every page, young historians will learn something new about each invention through engaging stories accompanied by beautiful illustrations and design—you may even find you have the next Charles Drew on your hands after they put the book down. Not only will kiddos learn about these amazing inventions, they will participate in the original creative process themselves, like building a telescope using the same rudimentary methods used by the inventors. From ancient to modern inventions, kids will discover the revolutionary ideas and processes used to create the foundation for our modern lives.
