A Picture Book of Thomas Alva Edison by David A. Adler
A Picture Book of Thomas Alva Edison by David A. Adler, illustrated by John & Akexandra Wallner

Adler seems to have developed a near-perfect formula for picture book biographies. From presidents to explorers to civil rights leaders, this series does a fine job introducing the lives of famous people to curious young listeners and readers. This recent entry, focusing on the busy Thomas Alva Edison, does another fine job of balancing the right amount of fact, personal life and history. Readers with no prior knowledge of Edison' role in history will come away from this book with a nice foundation. The Wallners' line and watercolor illustrations are busy enough to maintain interest, while still simple enough to appeal to even the youngest viewers.
