This books shows how the American inventor George Ferris worked to defy all the odds and harness his creative visison and mind for detail in order to invent the Ferris Wheel. This book is fun while being factfilled. Taking readers to the 1893 World's Fair where George Ferris and his Ferris Wheel lifted passengers and took them on a ride for the first time. I thought his book was extremely interesting and well written, shining a light onto the invention process of one of the most popular amusement park rides. As a teacher I would use this to incorporate into a STEM lesson where I would give students tools that the would need to investigate with and create a rotating wheel. This is a fun way to support STEM activities in the classroom.… (mais)

This was a lovely book about the beginning of the Ferris Wheel. It was both a story and a collection of info bits that made it that much more fun to read. Plus the illustrations take the reader back 120 years and make you ready to see the sun and walk the midway.

This book is a great biography about George Farris and his journey leading to the creation of the Farris wheel. The pictures make it a fun book to follow along with and it is easy to picture yourself with Mr. Farris in his journey. This book can be related to not only science but a big part of history too with the World Fair back in 1893. This book touches on some difficulties Mr. Farris faced on his journey, but ends with him overcoming obstacles in his great creation of the fun ride we all know and love today. This book is great for the classroom to show kids the history behind a famous attraction and makes for a quick read and easy follow format.… (mais)
