KIRKUS REVIEW

This seems, at the start, a bit younger than the preceding, but then children start studying prehistoric man in the very early grades, so are ready for the first steps in invention, as weapons were crudely made with sticks and stones, dugout canoes provide early water travel, the first wheel is invented. Step by step, the text approaches the complexities of modern life, by taking up those key inventions that have made this industrial age possible. Lots of fascinating answers to questions every child asks, done in very readable fashion. Upper age level.
