Alexander Graham Bell: Inventor and Visionary (Great Life Stories) by Kendall F. Haven

Alexander Graham Bell may be best known for the telephone, but there was more to him than just one invention. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1847, Bell was a curious child who loved music and nature. He conceived his first invention, a tub to scrape husks off wheat kemels, at the age of eleven. Besides being an inventor, Bell was also an educator. He taught music and elocution for a few years and went on to work with deaf students, helping them learn to speak. After moving to Canada with his parents in 1870, Bell went to Boston, where he continued his teaching career and his work on inventions. In 1875, Bell succeeded in his efforts to create the telephone. After his great success with the telephone, Bell continued to conduct experiments and to work on numerous inventions, including the audiometer and hydrofoil speedboats. Book jacket.
