Born on a small farm in rural Michigan, Henry Ford’s humble beginnings were no match for his ambition. Ford quickly created a manufacturing dynasty, bringing affordable cars to the masses and forever changing America and the American workplace. Who Was Henry Ford? details his meteoric rise, and explains how the genius behind the assembly line and the Model T shaped modern American industry.
I restore Model T Fords and want my grandkids to understand how they came about and how they influenced the making of the automobile, the production line and the automobile industry in the USA but the world. My daughter has established a very nice kids library and that is what these books are for.

This book was just what I needed for supplementary reading for my adult literacy student--middle grade reading level and adult interest level. The author presents an engaging story of Henry Ford's life and his place in American history. The book is illustrated by excellent line drawings on almost every page. The prose is straight forward with plenty of new words to expand the student's working vocabulary and to inspire discussion. I plan to use other books from the "Who Was..." series with adult English learners eager to learn about the history of their new country.

We love these books for the easy and abundant research our kids can understand and write their book reports on. It covers a lot about Ford's career from start to finish, ups and downs, and all.

My son loves the "Who Was" series! He personally owns more than 60 of these books.
At $5.99 a pop, I would reccomend checking out 2nd and Charles as a second source.

My son is not into reading fiction. He doesn't care about 'made up' stories, so this series is great for him. He really enjoyed this book and I also read it and thought it was well written and very informative.
