Whoosh!: Lonnie Johnson’s Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions

Whoosh!: Lonnie Johnson’s Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions is an inspirational true story about perseverance. Writer Chris Barton did a great job making a book that reads like an interesting story and not a text book. The colorful illustrations by Don Tate add fun pictures for the kids to enjoy while reading this biography of Lonnie Johnson. Lonnie started inventing as a young boy. He dreamed of being an engineer, but an exam told him he should pursue a different path. Refusing to give in, he set out to prove the test wrong, working hard to become an engineer and even do invaluable work for NASA. He faced and overcame many challenges in life and went on to invent many things. This was definitely an inspiring story about never giving up on your dreams and working hard to overcome the challenges you face along the way.
