Review:

With text by Alex Frith and illustrations by Colin King, See Inside Inventions lets readers do just that. The book explains who invented the engines, flying machines, electrical systems, medicines and other technologies used today. It explains that there are different types of inventions, too. Some are a combination of existing ideas, some are inspired by recent discoveries, some are improvements on existing inventions, and others are totally new. Each page of the book has flaps that reveal engines inside of planes, the history of the Kodak camera, and the design of Edison's lightbulb. Children will learn the date that important inventions came to be, who invented them, and the scientific reason that they work.
