Timeless Thomas: How Thomas Edison Changed Our Lives
What do record players, batteries, and movie cameras have in common? All these devices were created by the man known as The Wizard of Menlo Park: Thomas Edison.
Edison is most famous for inventing a successful incandescent lightbulb. At his landmark laboratories in Menlo Park & West Orange, New Jersey, he also developed many other staples of modern technology. Despite his many failures, Edison persevered. We can all be thankful of that persistence as it would be very difficult to go through a day without using one of his life-changing inventions. Written to inspire ages 5-10.
