About the Author:

Laura Hamilton Waxman has written many nonfiction books for young readers.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2-4-This set is a browsers' delight as well as a rich resource for science or pop-history report writers. The volumes each pair breezy but factual accounts of the development of 10 to 12 common items with a mix of modern and period images or photos. Familiar as the inventions are (e.g., blue jeans, Band-Aids, Botox, toilet paper, and instant replay), the stories of their creations are often not so easy to discover. The generous annotated resource lists at the end of each volume add further value. Grades 5 & Upα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
