Oh, the Things They Invented!

Oh, the Things They Invented!

From the first printing press to the World Wide Web—the Cat looks at inventors and inventions that have changed our lives! The Cat in the Hat goes back in time to meet with the masterminds of more than a dozen inventions that made a major impact on our lives today—from famous figures like Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, and the Wright brothers to lesser-known ones like Garrett Morgan, Mary Anderson, and Tim Berners-Lee. Children will learn basic information about each invention, as well as fascinating facts like how Guttenberg’s famous printing machine was made from an old wine press, how a steaming teakettle may have inspired the creation of the steam engine, and how table salt changed the history of photography. Ideal for supporting the Common Core State Standards, and a natural for fans of the hit PBS Kids show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, this is a great way to introduce beginning readers to science!
