Thomas Edison and His Bright Idea by Patricia Brennan Demuth

As a curious child who was always asking questions, it's no wonder Thomas Edison grew up to become a famous prolific inventor. This easy to read nonfiction story follows Edison from his time in school to his career as a full-time inventor. While it focuses on his ground-breaking creation of the Lightbulb, this illuminating account also details other important innovations of his, like the phonograph and the microphone. Edison's discoveries will fascinate and inspire all curious young minds.
