Product Details

Everyone makes mistakes and Harry Coover is no different. A brilliant scientist, Harry keeps making the same extra-sticky mistake but then he begins to wonder whether it’s not such a mistake… A fun narrative non-fiction about the scientist, Harry Coover, who accidently discovered super glue!

I love narrative non-fiction so was super excited to come across this book, that also helps children learn that mistakes are not necessarily a bad thing. It's a biograph about the life of Harry Coover a chemist. He was asked to make a special sort of plastic in world war 2. He accidentally made a sticky mess. This was later developed into super glue, which has many practical uses today.

Great for 4 to 9 year olds
