Summer reading lists can sometimes seem VERY boring and hard, for kids who just aren't into reading.

So why not make it more fun and interesting?

This new book is perfect for the pre-teen crowd!


Synopsis:

Have you ever heard of a bike TV? Or a bird diaper? 

50 Wacky Inventions Throughout History describes 50 inventions that seem too crazy to be true--but are! Whether useful, entertaining, or just plain silly, these mind-boggling inventions and gadgets from yesterday, today, and tomorrow will surprise and delight fun-fact lovers of all ages.




Review:

Aimed at kids ages 7 to 12, this surprising book is perfect for getting kids interested in not only History, but Engineering, Science and more! Which means it isn't just reading, it's STEM education! Score! 

The inventions are accompanied by fun illustrations that get kid's imaginations off and running! The inventions run the gamut from useful (multiple alarm clock variations) to really off the wall (a jacket that holds your hamster in tubes?), but all will make your kids (and you) say 'huh, whoda thought?" And just might inspire your kids to get out pencil and paper and come up with their own inventions. You could even have a Summer invention contest with the kids in your family and their friends. See who could come up with an invention that is the most useful, and you just might find a diamond that could lead to it being made!
