Publisher: Tundra (October 2011)
Formats Available: Hardcover
Format Read: Hardcover
Age Range: 5-8
My thoughts: Tundra has introduced an absolutely fantastic series written by Monica Kulling. The Great Ideas Series features biographies of inventors that are targeted to early readers. While my monkey isn’t quite reading yet, he loves to learn. He is especially interested in where things come from.
In the Bag is the third book in the series and tells us about Margaret Knight who is best known for inventing the paper bag. I’ll admit, I had no idea how the paper bag came to be before picking up In the Ba, so it was a fascinating learning experience for both of us. Monica Kulling does a fantastic job engaging the younger reader in the story by bringing the story to their level. She introduces Margaret Knight as a child, explaining how she liked to build things and experiment. (I know these are two things that my monkey enjoys immensely.) Then carries the story forward with how she invented the paper bag.
In the bag has been steady in our reading rotation since its arrival in our home. I think this book is an excellent addition to the young readers library and you can bet that the other volumes in the series will find a home here as well.
