I received an advance review copy for free, leaving this review voluntarily.

Creativity is an area in which younger people have a tremendous advantage since they have an endearing habit of always questioning past wisdom and authority.

They published their latest book,  Accidental Inventions That Changed Our World,  in November 2021. It will help parents answer some of the millions of questions their kids are constantly asking!

My take on Accidental Inventions That Changed Our World

Accidental Inventions That Changed Our World will stimulate your child’s curiosity about everyday things that we use. And they will learn that they can also be inventors. They only need to be curious, keep an open mind, and be willing to think out of the box. It will surprise them to learn that inventions can come by accident or by finding a different use for something we already have.

and find ways to turn failed experiments into something valuable and useful.  

The titles are often funny and frequently uses idioms to create curiosity and anticipation about what invention will be explored next. The authors use simple language, making it a great book to read aloud to younger readers. But older readers will enjoy reading the book themselves, or they may even read the stories that fascinate them to you!

Hi! I am Susan

Welcome to my adventure

Why Read or Rot?

I have started reading at the age of four. I can remember how I often read under the covers with a flashlight when I was supposed to sleep.

During my early school years, we visited the library once a week. I couldn’t pick out my new book fast enough! By the end of the period, I would have finished it already, leaving me with nothing to read for the rest of the week!

Growing up, Fridays was the highlight of my week. Dad would pack the whole family into the car, and off we go! You guessed right – to the library! We were a family of readers.

In my adult years, I’ve developed a variety of interests like technology, photography, gardening and even writing. But reading was and will always be a part of my life!

Reading for me is like breathing. If I cannot read, my soul will quietly rot away
