Nikola Tesla’s name and accomplishments have come into the spotlight recently. Though he was a brilliant inventor, he was not always taken seriously during his life, and people didn’t know what he could do.
Bright Dreams shares a short account of Tesla, from his birth through his development of AC power. The book is geared for children, and is easy for them to understand. Words that may be new for them are explained in side notes and a glossary. Colorful illustrations show what the text is saying and help young readers see the ideas of the book.
Technology and engineering are important fields today, and this book can give children information about what can be done in these fields. It may even help some of them get started towards a career.
I received a complimentary copy from the publisher through NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
