Amazing Inventions That Changed The World: How The Movies Were invented “In 1872, before cell phones and cars, When life was much simpler and slower than ours, Something amazing and special began, Thanks to the wealth of a powerful man. Movies and films weren’t invented quite yet, Until Leland Stanford made quite a strange bet.” Amazing Inventions That Changed The World: How The Movies Were invented “In 1872, before cell phones and cars, When life was much simpler and slower than ours, Something amazing and special began, Thanks to the wealth of a powerful man. Movies and films weren’t invented quite yet, Until Leland Stanford made quite a strange bet.” Did you know that motion pictures began thanks to a bet about horse racing that a billionaire named Leland Stanford and his friend made? Does the horse take off the ground all four legs when galloping? But how could people from the end of the 19th century actually find out the truth if the horse ran so fast? The answer was simple – photography! That’s what we would say today. But back then, in 1872, photography was very primitive and quite slow. With a few years of experiments, the bet finally was solved! And as a side effect, we have moving pictures that are called movies today. What do you think, does the horse take off the ground all four legs when galloping? Written for children 7-12 years old, the book is also great for young and old who are curious about inventions, and in this case, “a clever invention without any doubt.”

    An absolutely wonderful book. The book is written in wonderful rhyme. This is a book young and old will read over and over again. There is so much packed into one little book. There is so much to discuss. You have the time period, the the idea of how pictures were taken compared to today. Most importantly you learn how still pictures morphed into moving pictures. I learned something I'd always wondered about. Such a wonderful way to teach something without the child realizing they are learning. An absolutely wonderful book.

    I loved this informative yet entertaining children's book. The author relates how movies were inadvertently invented because of a bet between two gentlemen at a horse race. The book is written solely in rhyme and is beautifully illustrated. The pictures were interesting and even made me smile! This book would be ideal for ages 6+. There is a silhouette of a running horse on the bottom corner of the pages which would appear to move when the book is flipped.

I didn't see an illustrator's name so the author must have both written and illustrated the book.
