Kid Innovators by Robin Stevenson

I’m slowly developing a library of good books now that my daughter is getting older and loving to read with me. I saw this book advertised and was SO excited to get my hands on a copy!

Thank you Quirk Books for my gifted copy in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: Throughout history people have experimented, invented, and created new ways of doing things. Kid Innovators tells the stories of a diverse group of brilliant thinkers in fields like technology, education, business, science, art, and entertainment, reminding us that every innovator started out as a kid. Florence Nightingale rescued baby mice. Alan Turing was a daydreamer with terrible handwriting. And Alvin Ailey felt like a failure at sports. Featuring kid-friendly text and full-color illustrations, readers will learn about the young lives of people like Grace Hopper, Steve Jobs, Reshma Saujani, Jacques Cousteau, the Wright Brothers, William Kamkwamba, Elon Musk, Jonas Salk, and Maria Montessori.

This book is EXCELLENT! It has both males and females, people from all different cultures, and features of all different types of jobs. This is the best book of role models for my kids to learn about. I ESPECIALLY love that it features each innovator’s childhood, something that my little kids can resonate with now and realize that anything is possible! It’s written in little short chapters, but my almost four year old can follow along perfectly. I think it really helps that there are pictures on almost every single page. The art is adorable and each story is just so inspiring. I’m rushing to purchase the other books featured in this series right away!

5/5 Stars
