Synopsis: This original timeline treats each subject as a visual thread and makes any history lesson memorable. Children can't resist following along to find out what happens. Visual Timelines: Inventions is an invaluable resource that provides unbeatable material for any student.

From School Library Journal: Grade 5-9?Unlike many similar books on the topic, this volume manages to convey a sense of how the passage of time affects creative design. Inventions are organized into five categories (world events, travel and conquest, agriculture and industry, daily life and health, and measurement and communication) and are presented concurrently in a timeline that starts in 600,000 B.C. and proceeds, with each turn of the page, to the present. This approach allows readers to note coincidences in creativity. Short captions fill in information about the inventions, but for good explanations of their significance or definitions of terms, readers will have to look elsewhere. The full-color photographs are varied and interesting. What's more, this book teaches a sophisticated form of literacy similar to skills students learn when they interact with multimedia resources?reading both text and pictures?and provides a third understanding, that of juxtaposition.?Cathryn A. Camper, Minneapolis Public Library
