This book was amazing! It was short and included many details about Steve Jobs. What surprised me the most was the fact that he was so poor and then became a billionaire. "Steve couldn't pay for college". "Steve Jobs was a success- a big success. He wasn't a millionaire anymore. He was a billionaire." Steve Jobs has showed me that it doesn't matter where you come from, you can be a success. That a poor child can go from having no money to becoming one of the richest and youngest men alive.
My 11 year old daughter loves this book. She also likes the others in the series, but she really loves this one. Its cool that she understands the background behind all the Apple devices she is using. She really embraced the idea that Steve Jobs did not invent any of the technologies, he just made them practical, and more importantly, fun to use. She said she thought she knew a lot about Jobs before reading the book, but she really didn't know much at all. She was amazed in the amount of interesting facts about his life. She talked about Jobs for about 3 days straight after reading it.
This book about Steve jobs was very intresting. These books can teach kids and adults new things. This book even has a timeline about what was happening in other places during the life time of Steve jobs. This book doesn't just teach you about Steve jobs it also teaches you about his family and friends.
My grandson had a research paper to do on Steve Jobs. This book was a real help and gave a lot of back ground information in a simple and straightforward manner. He was able to get a lot of basic information here and then go to other places if he needed to expand on the basic information. Very well done for an elementary school child.
My 8 and 9 year old sons and I read a few pages of a 'Who Was' book every night before they go to bed. The series is interesting and educational... teaching my sons and me about important people's contributions to our lives. But what I love most about these entertaining books is that show my sons the struggles and failures many 'successful' people face and how they persist and don't give up on their dreams
