Praise

“The appealing Eureka! The Biography of an Idea series introduces primary-grade students to the history behind familiar inventions, from an initial concept or prototype to versions familiar to users today. The writing is simple, clear, and often lively. Richly colorful, digital artwork suggests the look of different time periods and cultures, while portraying individuals who developed each invention and showing how its appearance has changed through the years. Well attuned to the intended audience, this series is both engaging and informative.” —Booklist

“This simple overview covers 2,500 years of photography. Colorful, cartoon illustrations fill each spread providing useful visual explanations. Quick facts and tips for taking good photos are included…. for collections where there is an interest in photography.” —School Library Journal

“A concise, inclusive history of the evolution of the bicycle. The multicountry perspective (Germany, England, France, America, Ireland, and China are all mentioned) is a refreshing angle; also welcome is the information on ways bicycles were and are used, their efficiency, and the etymology of bicycle names and terms. This engaging history of the bicycle is sure to pique young riders’ interest while it enriches their knowledge.” Kirkus Reviews (for EUREKA!: Bicycle)

“This concise history starts with German Karl Drais’s 1817 invention of a wooden two-wheeled ‘running machine’…[and] culminat[es] with ‘a bicycle for just about everybody’….The lively illustrations keep pace with the accessible and engaging text.” —The Horn Book (for EUREKA!: Bicycle)
