Review 1 for Champions of Invention
A Page Turner with Great Morals!
Date:August 10, 2011
This book was fascinating to read! There are so many little-known facts in it about famous people like Benjamin Franklin, Alexander Graham Bell and many others. I especially appreciated how Tiner expertly wove the beliefs and values of each inventor into his detailed stories. I can't wait to read it to my kids!

Great book. Champions of Invention and Champions of Science are both wonderfully inspiring. They are written so that they can be a good read aloud choice or child can easily read it on their own. My two boys ages 10 and 9 have really enjoyed both books. Tiner mixes Science and the Christian faith together for create an interesting and motivating story.
