An educational picture book that teaches the importance of perseverance as a young girl creates her first invention and earns her first patent.

  

Abby has had enough — whenever she colors, her crayons snap in two. Ugh!! Why do all crayons break?! Fueled by her frustration, Abby invents the world's first UNBREAKABLE CRAYONS. She even gets a patent to prove it! Through Abby's failures and eventual success, she playfully introduces young readers to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.

 

From debut author and patented inventor, Dr. Arlyne Simon, comes this inspiring story introducing kids to the joy of inventing.  Purdue University selected Abby Invents as a book that promotes problem-solving in kids, ages 4-9.
