My selection is "Imaginative Inventions: the who, what, where, when and why of roller skates, potato chips, marbles, and pie and more!" by Charise Mericle Harper.
Children will enjoy this lively look at some familiar items and foods. Harper fills each double page spread with quirky illustrations to complement the creative rhyming text as she playfully relates the creation of piggy banks, marbles, chewing gum, animal cookies, doughnuts and wheelbarrows to name a few. Each entry also includes a short collection of facts about the inventor and invention.
