Earmuffs for Everyone by Meghan McCarthy

I will admit I am a big fan of Meghan McCarthy's nonfiction books.  I love "tricking" kids into reading nonfiction and LEARNING something and them not even knowing it!  Awesome!  Her nonfiction books read like a picture book story so the kids that are reluctant to reading nonfiction will actually read them!!  Furthermore I love the topics she picks:  Balto, Seabiscuit, Walter Diemer, etc.  That being said, her newest books is about Chester Greenwood, inventor, or the "improver" of Earmuffs.  The book also has a nice introduction to the process of inventing and patents.  It also discuses other inventors, such as Edison, and Greenwood's other inventions.  A great fun introduction to someone few may be familiar with.
