Talk about Listen Up!: Alexander Graham Bell's Talking Machine

I have purchase at least six of this series of readers, the kids love them. Not only are they reading , they are learning real history. The younger ones that cant read sit an listen as the story unfolds. Big brother reads aloud, builds his confidence, the story "Who knew" talking wires of a piano string. Lead to conversation about telegraph keys and Morris code, signal flares, mirrors and flash lights that lead to old school manual type writers, electric typewriters prints and iPad. One thirty minutes read lead to 3 days of learning. Truly priceless. We just finished Ben Franklin another success.
This is a good series for early elementary. The writing is lively and the colorful pictures are appealing to children who are used to cartoons. Each book describes an important historical figure or invention. This one describes the excitement when Bell invented the telephone. I think it's a good idea to choose one important characteristic to catch the child's imagination. Even though it doesn't begin to describe the whole character, it might help the children remember the name and perhaps even help them begin to grasp the significance of some historical events.
Love the book! I am a teacher and I am always looking for lower reader levels for my lower students.
watching to future
I love these series. But most important that my son does. I order 20+ books and he loves to read them (usually it is not that easy to make him read). I got mix of 2-3-4 levels for the second grader, second level is too easy, but it creates some fun and he reads them with pleasure. Love it, I would recommend it.
Great for my homeschooler
This was a great book for my class to read aloud. It's easy enough for them to understand and they love being able to tell about a person using expression they can read. Thank you for your prompt delivery.
Great book to help understand history. Easy to ready and great way to start a conversation
I bought this book for my grandson who loves to read, but sometimes gets discouraged by the length of "chapter books." Most shorter books at this reading level are fanciful fiction. This book is not too long, and it's informational as well. He loved reading about a "real man" who invented a "machine" we use daily.
