Description

"I find out what the world needs. Then I go ahead and try to invent it." With these words, Thomas Edison explains how he developed ideas and turned them into useful inventions. Although he is most famous for inventing the light bulb, Edison is credited with hundreds of inventions. The young boy who did poorly in school became one of the most famous men in America. This exciting new biography of Thomas Edison will enlighten, as well as entertain, elementary school kids.
Praise for the In Their Own Words series: "Short chapters, large print, simple vocabulary, straightforward narrative, and attractive illustrations, as well as the addition of the subjects' own words, make ["In Their Own Words"] fine choices for early-grade biographies." — Booklist
