Baffling & Bizarre Inventions by Jim Murphy. This book is fun and one that can be revisited over and over. The book is in a multiple-choice/quiz format. Each page gives the reader an illustration of a bizarre invention, a little piece of information and 4 choices of what the invention is. When you turn the page, you see the correct answer, along with a few paragraphs about the information. This may include the reason for the invention, info on how the invention worked,
The title definitely fits this book. Every time I sit down with it, I open to a random page and am amazed at the invention shared.
This is a fun book and kids will have fun reading it alone or with friends. It would also make a great short read aloud for classrooms. During those 5 minute times between activities or when lining up for lunch, kids will love making a guess and learning about one of these inventions. It won't take much to get kids hooked on this book
