Kindergarten-Grade 4-In this latest entry in a well-known series, Adler recycles material from Thomas Alva Edison (Holiday, 1990). This greatly simplified and shortened biography does not afford much insight into Edison's character, but focuses on the highlights of the man's life and career achievements. By depicting well-chosen incidents, Adler and the Wallners provide interesting glimpses of an inquisitive youth who grew into a hard-working visionary. An adequate introduction with appeal for reluctant readers and very young listeners.
