Alexander Graham Bell Answers the Call by Mary Ann Fraser at Once Upon A Time Bookstore

Well before Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, Aleck (as his family called him) was a curious boy, interested in how and why he was able to hear the world all around him. This in-depth look at the life and inspiration of the brilliant man who invented the telephone is sure to gear up the imaginations of young readers who question why and how things work. Backmatter includes more information about Bell's inventions, a timeline of his life, a bibliography, and sources for further learning.
