Booklist - 04/15/2021 The appealing Eureka! The Biography of an Idea series (4 titles) 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. Labeled diagrams illustrate how the technologies described actually work. Although two British inventors are mentioned, Light Bulb focuses primarily on the work of Thomas Edison and his team in developing the incandescent bulb. Well attuned to the intended audience, this series is both engaging and informative. - Copyright 2021 Booklist.
