Gr 3-6–Readers will step into the past and witness the origin of some of the most important inventions in history in this Spanish-language nonfiction title that examines items like the wheel, money, the light bulb, vaccines, and penicillin. A conversational tone invites readers to take a look at the world around them, encouraging them to jump into the past and imagine how each invention might have come to be. Scenarios explore the need each invention must have filled and the purpose it served, all while educating kids about past peoples and civilizations. Entries feature young characters helping to contribute to these great inventions, in line with the author’s message encouraging readers to invent something of their own. Each invention profile features black-and-white illustrations; important terms in bold, which are often defined within the text; and a brief summary about the inventor and their creation’s impact. The fun, informal approach, exciting scenarios, and fast-paced chapters make this an excellent way for young readers to learn about inventions and history.
VERDICT A great addition to Spanish-language nonfiction collections for youth.
