Item description for Who in the World Was the Secretive Printer?: The Story of Johannes Gutenberg (Who In The World) by Robert Beckham, Secretive Print & Jed Mickle...

In this engaging junior-level biography, Beckham goes beyond the few facts usually told about Johannes Gutenberg, inventor of the printing press, and tells Gutenberg's personal story. Illustrations.

Publishers Description
Johannes Gutenberg spent his days shut away, working on a mysterious project. His neighbors wondered what he was doing in his metal shop. Why did he need so much money? Was he making expensive gold jewelry? Weapons? Armor? What project could possibly take up so many hours of Johannes s time? And how did his invention change the world? Outstanding illustrations from Jed Mickle complement the fabulous story, giving second-grade readers insight into the life of this influential figure. About the series The classical curriculum introduces even the youngest student to the pleasures of true learning. Elementary students learn history not through predigested textbooks with multiple-choice answers, but through reading the stories of history. Unfortunately, biographies of great men and women of the past are almost all written for older students, limiting the ability of young students to explore history through reading. Libraries are crammed with biographies written for high school students and adults while beginning readers are provided with a shelf full of junior-level books about football players, NASCAR drivers, and movie stars. Now, Peace Hill Press puts real history back into the grasp of the youngest historians with the Who in the World Biography Series. The first entries in the series provide young readers and their parents and teachers with biographies of great men and women of the Middle Ages. Designed to be used as part of The Story of the World curriculum, these biographies give beginning historians in grades 2 4 a chance to explore beyond the textbook. An audio version is also available separately."
