Synopsis: Now in paperback—National Geographic Children's Books presents the award-winning photobiography of Alexander Graham Bell. This fascinating profile, named a School Library Journal Best Book of the Year, uses direct quotes to give readers a vivid insight into the life of a prolific inventor, driven to succeed.

With a foreword by Gilbert M. Grosvenor, Bell's great-grandson, Always Inventing features over 70 period photographs and drawings from Bell's notebooks.

From his first invention at age 11—a tool to clean husks from wheat kernels—to his patent of the hydrofoil 64 years later, Bell was always inventing. Bell was also one of the original founders of the National Geographic Society.

Awards include:

  • Notable Social Studies Trade Book for Young People—NCSS/CBC
  • New York Public Library 100 Titles for Reading and Sharing
  • Best Book of the Year—School Library Journal

From the Inside Flap: "I have accidentally made a discovery of the very greatest importance...".

Alexander Graham Bell's words, written in 1875, heralded the very first time that human speech was transmitted via a device that came to be known as the telephone. Bell's "accidental" discovery revolutionized communication and forever marked him as one of America's most famous inventors.

Who was the man behind the telephone?

Alec Bell was a thinker and a questioner, but even more important, a man driven to accomplish something. The telephone was just one of his many inventions. They range from a simple agricultural tool he made at age 11 to a patent for his work on the hydrofoil 64 years later. Bell's enthusiasm extended beyond inventing to "the world and all that is in it" and led him to become an original member of the National Geographic Society.
