"The appealing Eureka! The Biography of an Idea series introduces primary-grade students to the history behind familiar inventions, from an initial concept or prototype to versions familiar to users today. The writing is simple, clear, and often lively. Richly colorful, digital artwork suggests the look of different time periods and cultures, while portraying individuals who developed each invention and showing how its appearance has changed through the years. Well attuned to the intended audience, this series is both engaging and informative." —Booklist
