School Library Journal - 04/01/2020 Gr 1–3—Of the four inventors featured in this series, Benjamin Franklin is the only household name. The other three invented familiar or commonly used things (the Super Soaker from Lonnie Johnson being a highlight for children), but their names are less well known. All the books provide some context for the invention, describe how it came into being, share a brief biography of the individual, and explain the impact of his creation. The straightforward writing uses short, concise sentences and is organized in a primarily chronological format. Large photographs are included on all spreads with brief, informative captions. Back matter includes a glossary, further reading, and critical thinking questions. VERDICT These will be a strong addition to biography collections for the youngest readers. - Copyright 2020 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
