Description

See below for English description.

Le monde serait beaucoup plus sombre sans les ampoules de Thomas Edison. C'est lui qui les a inventées, mais il n'en est pas resté là! En effet, on lui doit plus de 1000 inventions dont sa préférée, le phonographe.Thomas Edison est né le 11 février 1847. Il est mort le 18 octobre 1931. Le jour de ses funérailles, les Américains ont éteint les lumières pendant une minute. Quand ils les ont rallumées, ils ont eu une pensée pour l'homme qui avait contribué à éclairer le monde et qui venait de les quitter à l'âge de 84 ans.

Meet Thomas Edison - world-famous inventor. The story of his many inventions, including the phonograph and the light bulb, is told in level-appropriate language and detailed illustrations in the Level 3 first reader.

Original title: Thomas Edison

Contributor Notes

On a peine à croire qu'Elizabeth MacLeod n'a jamais pris un cours d'écriture durant ses quatre années d'études à l'Université de Toronto. Elle a préféré étudier les sciences et a reçu une mention en biologie et en botanique. Elle a été éditrice pour le magazine OWL (Hibou et Coulicou) de 1986 à 1989. Elle a écrit de nombreux livres pour enfants en anglais et on lui doit la collection intitulée Biographie sur l'histoire de Samuel de Champlain, des frères Wright, d'Alexander Graham Bell et bien d'autres.

Thomas Edison (Kids Can Read 3)

Thomas Edison (1847-1931) was a boy who asked tons of questions and wanted to know how things worked. He grew up to become the father of 1000+ inventions, including the phonograph and light bulb. Coloured illustrations and quick facts about the American inventor are included.
