Innovations in Entertainment

“Bright photographs, lots of fact boxes, and standard text features combine to give young readers a quick one or two-page introduction to inventions.” -Puget Sound Council for the Review of Children’s and Young Adult Literature, 06/18 Best Books for Kids & Teens - The Canadian Children’s Book Centre, Spring 2017 “Innovations in Entertainment by L.E. Carmichael is terrific! Makers, STEM instructors, and kid inventors can find inspiration here. Kids will love this book! I like the challenges for kids under the 'Think Big' section (p29): 'A new board or video game' or 'A new sport for rainy days'. These design ideas are perfect! The librarian could position this book along side of a Lego table. The classroom teacher might save this book for a dreary Friday afternoon to inspire kids to design their own board game. Innovations in Entertainment drives home to kids STEM is creative, original, and fun! Perfect!” - NSTA Recommends, 03/17
