Excerpt

Thomas Edison

An inventor, Thomas Edison--many years ago--
turned on lights for everyone so that we could go
almost any place, even in the dark--
a hospital, a school, or even a local park!
Tom was born in Ohio, but grew up in Michigan.
His mom was his first teacher when his learning did begin.
She taught Tom to read and write, and challenge all the rules.
He always asked good questions--he know what he had to do.
Constantly inventing from his lab in Menlo Park,
as a chemist and an engineer, Tom analyzed each part.
Edison wore many hats in his quest to serve mankind.
He showed other inventors how to wisely use their time!
