The Story of Inventions

By Michael J. McHugh
and Frank P. Bachman
Published by Christian Liberty Press Copyright 1992

Sprinkled with black and white illustrations, this is a story book. Each chapter is presented like a story of the inventions or the life of the inventors. Recommended for grades 4-6, these stories can be read by the children or you can read them to all ages as bedtime stories.

At the end of most chapters are 5 comprehension questions.

There is a second edition of this book. The schedule linked below does not work with the second edition.
