    I stumbled upon this series via Twitter and avid reader and reviewer Shari Sawyers @SawyersShari and happy I did. There are currently four in the series and I read two - From an Idea to Lego and From an Idea to Google. The other two in the series are about Disney and Nike. This is an easy to read series exploring and explaining the biographies of individuals credited and in charge of major companies. The books include factual information, illustrations, timelines, quizzes and fun facts interspe I stumbled upon this series via Twitter and avid reader and reviewer Shari Sawyers @SawyersShari and happy I did. There are currently four in the series and I read two - From an Idea to Lego and From an Idea to Google. The other two in the series are about Disney and Nike. This is an easy to read series exploring and explaining the biographies of individuals credited and in charge of major companies. The books include factual information, illustrations, timelines, quizzes and fun facts interspersed throughout the book. It also has a glossary defining terms right on the page and special sections on information related to the text. For example in the Google book, it talks about and explains what it means when a company goes public and how stocks work in kid friendly language. The text is suitable and the books are not overly long at just over a hundred pages. This series will compliment the Who is and What is series nicely and cover topics that are of interest to students and can/could be used to talk about text features. There are Source notes and a Bibliography at the back as well, so students are able to do further reading if interested. A definite addition to your nonfiction section.

    This was a fun, quick read. Intended for middle grades. Provides background stories and interesting anecdotes about the creators of Google. Engaging illustrations. Explains/defines new vocabulary and simplifies business concepts for understanding. Although the reading level is early intermediate, the information wasn't interesting to my first grader. It was intriguing to me, though, so I read it on my own! This was a fun, quick read. Intended for middle grades. Provides background stories and interesting anecdotes about the creators of Google.

    Good job of explaining business terms in "kid language" while weaving the story of Google. Good job of explaining business terms in "kid language" while weaving the story of Google.

    This shared loads of new information about something we all use daily, and it is a good choice for students who are inspired by the "makerspace" trend.

    Very excited to have her coming to my school at the end of the month. A very cool, informative non-fiction book in the vein of the "Who Was..." series.
