Practice makes perfect! And persistence helps!
Papa invents things that are almost nearly perfect, until he gets the idea to make a submarine. Time after time he almost has it, makes adjustments, and tries again. This book would be great to introduce a unit on inventions and inventors. It includes an "It's almost true" page that tells the story of the invention of the submarine. Great opportunity to talk about poetic license with kids. The pictures are detailed and intriguing and are worth a second look through the book after the story is read.
