Summary

Inventions That Shaped the World introduces young readers to revolutionary inventions, and emphasizes the impact the inventions had upon life at the time of their creation and beyond. Also explored is the featured invention's cultural significance, as well as the patterns of change that resulted from its origination. Chapters cover topics such as life before the invention, the need for the invention, its development, its influence upon culture, its evolution, and a biography on the inventor. Four-color photos, sidebars, a glossary, a timeline, an index, and a To Find Out More section complement the text. Daily life is complicated. Organization of our time is critical. This book explains how the calendar has played an important role in measuring, recording, and organizing time from the earliest civilizations to modern day. The author discusses the concept of time organization; the creators of the calendar; the calendar's development over time; and its role today.
