    One thought on “The Boo-Boos That Changed the World: A True Story about an Accidental Invention (Really!”

    1. Terrific narrative non-fiction for a product that nearly every child in the world has used--the band-aid! The book cover is clever, the inside illustrations brightly colored and engaging, and the text easy to follow with a hint of humor. Author Barry Wittenstein makes this book more versatile and useful with students of different abilities by adding several timelines and online extensions at the end. These additions are likely to encourage outside research on other medical inventions by many. Ta [...]

    2. #partner @charlesbridgepublishingThank you to Blue Slip Media for sharing this book. All opinions are my own.I’ve always been intrigued about the stories behind everyday objects. I’m always asking myself, “How long ago was this invented? What prompted it to be invented? How is it made? Who invented it?” I think these questions were prompted partially by my storytelling, and partially by my frequent conversations with my father who had an endless curiosity about the world.I can imagine ju [...]

    6. Could you live without band-aids? If the answer is no, then you are not alone. The idea of a band-aid didn’t come about until 1924. The idea wasn’t created when a man by the name of Earle Dickson discovered that his wife never could go a day without a cut, scratch, scrape or some other boo-boo. So, to make life a little easier for her he came up with the idea to put sterilized gauze on small sticky pieces of tape to help heal small cuts and scrapes. During this timeline this was not the easi [...]

    7. Thanks so much to Blue Slip Media for the review copy of this title!!As an elementary librarian, I usually know within 3 pages whether a book will be a hit as a read aloud or not. And this one will be a complete hit!While this title is undoubtably a high quality nonfiction title about a fascinating topic, it is also written in SUCH a fun style! The author keeps ending the story by saying "The End", and then on the next page correcting it and going on to continue the story. It will add such a dyn [...]

    8. Thanks to Blue Slip Media for the review copy of this book — all opinions are my own.This book is cleverly told in sections that show how each piece of the story could have been the end of Earle Dickson’s idea for the adhesive bandage. He could have created a bandage for his wife and never mentioned it to his boss. The end. But wait, there’s more! Each time Earle pushes on, a page turn reveals the next phase of his story.There is ample back matter that shows a timeline of the events descri [...]

    9. This book is FANTASTIC. I love that it highlight show an accident can be an amazing and positive thing. I have always just took band-aids for granted and now I will never be able to look at them the same. They have rich history and it is worth knowing. The illustrations are just adorable and add so much to the story because as a new or young reader can follow the story through the images in the book. I, as a teacher and mother, love that there is a timeline in the back. It is such a cool way to [...]

    10. Very interesting! I love history. We often don't think about where things come from that we use every day.

    11. This peppy, humorous account of the inspiration behind the invention of the bandaid sure was fun! Review soon on my blog!

    12. Information text about the band-aid's creation. Takes younger readers through the history of its invention and manufacture to modern use.

    13. Too many fake "The End"s. But a decent story. Nonfiction-ish. The story is true but the quotes and how the pair interacted is made up. But the important parts are there.
