9780060872458: Incredible Inventions

Inventions can be big, like roller coasters, or small, like crayons. And inventors can be scientists or athletes or even boys and girls! It's hard to imagine life without Popsicles, basketball, or Band-Aids, but they all started with just one person and a little imagination.

With sixteen original poems selected by Lee Bennett Hopkins and Julia Sarcone-Roach's imaginative artwork, Incredible Inventions celebrates creativity that comes in all shapes and sizes.

About the Author:

Noted poet Lee Bennett Hopkins has edited or authored numerous books for children, including the I Can Read Books Hamsters, Shells, and Spelling Bees; A Pet for Me: Poems; and the ALA Notable Children's Book Surprises. The recipient of a Christopher Award and the University of Southern Mississippi's Medallion for "lasting contributions to children's literature," Mr. Hopkins lives in Florida.



Julia Sarcone-Roach's animated short Call of the Wild has shown at numerous film festivals around the world. She attended the Rhode Island School of Design. This is her first book. Julia Sarcone-Roach lives in Brooklyn, New York.

From Booklist:

As the title suggests, ingenious inventions are the focus of this lively picture-book poetry collection. Contributed by both well-known and emerging poets, the selections represent a wide range of styles, from reflective haikus to high-energy concrete poems. The subjects, drawn from a young person’s everyday world, add to the poems’ accessibility; Band-Aids, Fig Newtons, blue jeans, Velcro, and jigsaw puzzles are among the creations spotlighted in poems that range in tone. Some are straightforward verse accounts of an object’s invention; others are more whimsical, such as Alice Schertle’s “The Signal’s Lament,” written from the viewpoint of a traffic light bored with its same trio of colors: “I long for magenta, maroon.” The mixed-media artwork’s well-designed compositions add energy without overwhelming the words, and a final prose section offers further information about each invention. The blend of poetry and technology makes this a natural choice for cross-curricular sharing, and kids will find inspiration in Drew Lamm’s reminder that inventions spring from “one person wondering on any old day.“ Grades 1-4. --Gillian Engberg
