Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this book! I found this book in my town library and read it with a group of kids and we all loved it! We learn the history of how various objects were invented, through clever rhyming poems. On the side of the page is a more detailed explanation of its invention. From frisbees to glasses, this informative and amusing book never gets old!
