Grade 5-8. This collection of short biographies focuses on seven scientists who were responsible for inventions such as the stethoscope, thermometer, and electrocardiograph. The well-written text is filled with details that will appeal to young readers, such as the accidental discovery of X rays and how false teeth were made in the early days of dentistry. Also included are explanations of how the inventions have been refined and are used today. The black-and-white photos and illustrations are informative and complement the narrative. This volume will be useful for assignments, but it's also interesting enough to hold the attention of browsers.?Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY
