Alexander Graham Bell Answers the Call by Mary Ann Fraser - ADVISABLE

Fraser, Mary Ann Alexander Graham Bell Answers the Call.  PICTURE BOOK.  Charlesbridge, 2017.  $17.

From the time he was small, the world spoke to Alexander Bell.  His natural curiosity helped him conceive many ideas helpful to those around him, including his mother, who was mostly deaf.  His work on the telephone didn’t commence until he was an adult.  With the help of Thomas Watson, and through many, many experiments, they finally found the combination that fulfilled their dreams.

This picture book biography brings Bell’s story to life with charming anecdotes and pictures of early Bell inventions.  A good addition to a young picture book biography collection.
