Birthday Month Giveaway on May 25, 2017 - The Gadget Inventor Handbook

My grandsons love to build things with Legos. They love science and science projects tend to get their attention. They get excited about the idea of making things like robots and cook gadgets, so when I saw Sterling Children's Books was releasing a new book about building "gadgets", I knew I had to ask if it was available for review. Happily it was . . . and another copy is available for giveaway as well!

The Gadget Inventor Handbook

Publisher - Sterling Children's Books
Ages - 8-12

Favorite Features -
  • 14 complete, fun projects for children to work on
  • Each project has easy to follow instructions
  • Encourages imagination, learning, and working with others
Sterling Children's Books says; "Hands-on projects for inventive kids! Gizmos, gadgets, circuits, and LEDs: this how-to book is packed with fun things for young inventors to make. From drawing a robot, and practicing on a breadboard, to building a racing machine, all the projects here have detailed step-by-step instructions and ample illustrations to guide kids as they master core electronics skills. Every object is customizable and perfect for firing up children’s imaginations. The 14 projects range from easy to advanced. Some may require adult supervision, A few make use of a soldering iron."

My grandsons are looking forward to working on these projects with their dad - they especially like the directions for building robots and race cars! I love books like this which encourage learning by providing fun activities which engage children . . . and when it is something a dad could get involved with, well, there is no down-side!

Not only did Sterling Children's Books send me one copy of The Gadget Inventor Handbook to review, but they are making another available for me to give away (USA only).

  10. My children would enjoy building anything that moves or makes noise, but definitely a robot would be on the top of their list. They love to create and build. This looks like a wonderful book for the upcoming summer.
