The Lovereading4Kids comment
TV presenter Adam Hart-Davies turns his attention to some of the key inventions which changed the world. His clear and simple explanations are supported by illustrations including flaps that lift and wheels which vividly demonstrate how toilets flush and the basic principles of the steam engine.
Fun to ‘play’ with, this is also a book which will teach each young reader about the machines they use in everyday life - and take for granted.
