I’m looking for a book about… inventors and inventions

posted in: 2. Illustrators and Authors | 7

Welcome to “I’m looking for a book about….”, the topic-themed monthly carnival of children’s literature.

Every month I encourage anyone who likes to review books for children (of any age) to leave links to their reviews of books that match the given month’s theme. The idea is that over time, this carnival will become a resource for parents, teachers, carers, librarians looking for books by subject.

Old reviews, new reviews, and reviews for any age are welcome. You may also submit multiple reviews, as long as they are all relevant to this month’s theme.

This month’s theme is…

**Inventors and Inventions*



If you’ve a review of a book for children about gardening, whether that be a nonfiction book, a picturebook or a collection of poetry, please share it by clicking on the blue button below (“Add you link”) or by leaving your suggesting in the comments to this post.
