Fantastic Book

Book Review Henry Ford--Young Man with Ideas Questions, questions, questions! That's all little Henry Ford did, was ask questions. Well that "little boy" became one of the smartest men alive and he changed the way people travel around the entire world. This book was honestly one of the best books I have ever read. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would definitely give it a 10! I couldn't possibly put it down. I would highly recommend this book to kids who have interests in inventions and want to learn about the fascinating life of Henry Ford. The book starts out when little Henry is turning five years old and expands to the rest of his life. This book tells about Henry's fascination with learning how things worked at an early age. Henry was always taking toys apart to see how they worked. One day he was given a broken watch. You would have thought he had been given his favorite candy. He had the watch fixed in no time! He was a curious boy with a smart mind. The book later tells how he becomes a multi-millionaire by manufacturing cars. Henry wanted to "build a car that everyone could own." He soon did and this car became known as the Model T. This book easily inspired me and could inspire other young children to push for their goals and dreams, and to never give up, no matter what happens.

Henry Ford: Young Man with Ideas

I liked the book, but I wish they had more dates than just when he was born. It would have been fun to know how old he was when he did or invented certain things. I think I am like him because I like to find ways to make work easier.

This book is ok but, I would like more detail though.

I would like more detail like on how he was born and when he died. I like this book because it talked about all his jobs and what he made and when he made it.
