Throughout history people have experimented, invented, and created new ways of doing things. Kid Innovators tells the stories of a diverse group of brilliant thinkers in fields like technology, education, business, science, art, and entertainment, reminding us that every innovator started out as a kid. Florence Nightingale rescued baby mice. Alan Turing was a daydreamer with terrible handwriting. And Alvin Ailey felt like a failure at sports.
Featuring kid-friendly text and full-color illustrations, readers will learn about the young lives of people like Grace Hopper, Steve Jobs, Reshma Saujani, Jacques Cousteau, the Wright Brothers, William Kamkwamba, Elon Musk, Jonas Salk, and Maria Montessori.

The Kid Legend Series is amazing and this latest title is no exception. It is divided into four parts (Tech Revolution; Seas, Skies, and Outer Space; Cracking Codes and Saving Lives; and Trailblazers) and includes such innovators as Grace Hopper, Jacques Cousteau, Hedy Lamarr; and Alvin Ailey. All the names were familiar to me, but some readers may not recognize Reshma Saujani and William Kamkwamba.
