Henry Ford: Putting the World on Wheels (Time for Kids Biographies) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a young boy, Henry Ford was fascinated by technology and how objects worked. His childhood interests led him to leave the Ford family farm in Michigan in search of a career with machinery, and the rest is automotive and economic history.

TIME For Kids® Biographies help make a connection between the lives of past heroes and the events of today. Henry Ford made cars affordable, turning them into the primary means of travel for Americans. His innovations, including the assembly line, are still benefiting us today.

Synopsis:

Now updated for 2008, this one-of-a-kind resource provides middle-grade students with a wealth of fascinating facts about things kids care about--from wild weather to their favorite celebrities. Full color.

Synopsis:

A small earthquake may just rattle some teacups. But a rare huge quake can bring down cities. Those rumblings are a reminder to pay attention to our earth. Scientists keep careful records of quakes around the world. They try to predict when the next one will happen.

In EARTHQUAKES , TIME For Kids(R) takes you inside the earth to discover what happens when the ground moves.
