The Boo-Boos That Changed The World
Did you know Band-Aids were invented by accident?! And that they weren’t mass-produced until the Boy Scouts gave their seal of approval?
1920s cotton buyer Earle Dickson worked for Johnson & Johnson and had a klutzy wife who often cut herself. The son of a doctor, Earle set out to create an easier way for her to bandage her injuries. Band-Aids were born, but Earle’s bosses at the pharmaceutical giant weren’t convinced, and it wasn’t until the Boy Scouts of America tested Earle’s prototype that this ubiquitous household staple was made available to the public. Soon Band-Aids were selling like hotcakes, and the rest is boo-boo history.
This book was so interesting! Who would have thought that a book about how Band-Aids were created could be so much fun! The Boo-Boos That Changed The World is a book you need to add to your child’s library. The author shares the story of Earle Dickson and his wife by adding lots of humor and just enough information to make it enjoyable.
There are several “The End”s in the book, and that will make you and your child chuckle. The illustrations add so much to the story, and you can really feel it come to life as you are reading. I think the fact that adults and children can enjoy the same book is great. It makes reading to your child a lot more fun when you love the story as well! I definitely recommend this one!
