Synopsis

Inventions A Thousand Years of Bright Ideas and the Science That Inspired Them by

Let Sparky show you the way in this definitive guide to the 50 most important inventions of the last 1,000 years, from eyeglasses to the ever-present internet itself. The little lightning-bolt character talks children through the text, providing quips and comments on the science, context and historical development of technology (fancy getting burnt at the stake for heresy?) and the spreads are accompanied by a fantastic mix of photos and illustrations. A perfect addition to young readers' bookshelves.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
