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.
