Reviews

An NSTA Best STEM Book of the Year
A Junior Library Guild Selection"The text effectively explains how the invention works as well as how it came to be, and young readers and listeners just may be inspired to try some inventing of their own. An excellent, entertaining choice to highlight social-emotional skills, history, and STEM."--Kirkus Reviews

"The approach to Morse's story has lots of charm, and Ramon's digitally colored pencil illustrations leaven the square-jawed protagonist's travails with gentle touches of humor. A timeline, bibliography, trivia bits, and even a photograph of early nineteenth century women telegraph operators are included."--The Bulletin

"Who makes a great topic of a picture book biography? Samuel Morse, that's who! This is an excellent biography on a lesser-known figure; add to collections looking for inventors and makers. As it turns out, . . . amuel M - - - r . . . e was a predecessor of the maker movement."--School Library Journal

"Another accessible exploration of an instrumental figure in STEM. Ramon's illustrations complement the breezy tone as they map Morse's journey. Readers curious about Morse code, discussed briefly in the text, should check under the book's jacket . A fun, informative way to tap into historical inventions. "--Booklist "A valuable lesson in grit and determination."--Horn Book
