Inventions can be big, like roller coasters, or small, like crayons. And inventors can be scientists or athletes or even boys and girls! It's hard to imagine life without Popsicles, basketball, or Band-Aids, but they all started with just one person and a little imagination. With sixteen original poems selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins and Julia Sarcone-Roach's imaginative artwork, Incredible Inventions celebrates creativity that comes in all shapes and sizes.
Lively, original poems from Marilyn Singer, Rebecca Kai Dotlich, and others are compiled in this celebration of fantastic inventions, such as jigsaw puzzles, blue jeans, and roller coasters!
