"It's very highly recommended." --Midwest Book Review
"This is a definite 5 star book. Perfect for book reports, STEM classes, and independent reading." --Devoted Mommy of 3
"A useful addition to a library serving middle grade students who enjoy biographies, science, and scientific activities." --School Library Journal Online
"Nikola Tesla for Kids is a compelling read as O'Quinn covers Tesla's early life in Europe, his brilliant inventions in the prime of his life, and the development of his famous Tesla Coil. When you add in the cool science experiments for kids to do on their own, it's a combination that's sure to be an asset to any classroom at school. I really enjoyed reading this book and you will, too." --Jennifer Swanson, author of Brain Games, and award-winning author of 35 STEM books for kids
"...a winning tribute to a scientific dreamer who was both a man of his times and, often, well ahead of them." --Kirkus Reviews
" ...a natural fit for any school library or classroom." --Foreword Reviews
"Offered so much in terms of science and STEM learning." --Inspired by Savannah
"An outstanding supplement to school materials for older kids." --Rhapsody in Books
"Amy M. O'Quinn, who crafted a spectacular nonfiction book on Marie Curie, brings her impeccable research skills to a biography of inventor Nikola Tesla. Both the brilliant, eccentric man the fields in which he worked are complex, but O'Quinn brings them to life through photographs, fascinating drawings, and a host of resources, including experiments young inventors can try on their own. While this is a perfect choice for elementary and middle school readers who wish to go beyond a picture book biography, adults whose knowledge of Tesla is confined to spotting a shiny new car on the highway will find much to appreciate in this well-crafted, timely portrait. Highly recommended." --Deborah Hopkinson, award-winning author of Who Was Charles Darwin?, The Great Trouble, and more
