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!
