Invented by Animals
Meet the creatures who inspired our everyday technology
by Christiane Dorion
This book will undoubtedly fascinate young future scientists. In it, they will learn about the many ways in which animals, sea creatures and insects have invented things that have inspired and influenced human technology. For instance, the second entry is about a butterfly that has taught humans about adding color to textiles. Next readers learn about a shark’s skin and its influence on everything from bathing suits to, potentially, the material on the outside of airplanes. Each colorful two page spread includes numerous facts and lively illustrations. There are more than thirty entries in all.
This is an interesting title that kids can explore in any order. Who knows what ideas they will have after reading this book?
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
