This combination of biography, history, and science recounts the life of Thomas Alva Edison, from his mid-19th century boyhood, to the establishment of his "invention factory" in Menlo Park, N.J., to his invention of the first electric lightbulb. The innovative question-and-answer format, mix of photographs and illustrations, and interactive experiments will both captivate and inform young readers.
Learn not only about the life of Edison, but about the nature of electricity. An at-home experiment allows young readers to have their own "Edison moment."
A time line and index provide supplementary materials.
