    This book sounds interesting. It should be fun for kids who like putting things together and may even encourage children who don’t normally build things to try something new.
    It may be followed by a robotics kit of some kind. That would help to further encourage children who may be interested in building something of their own. There are several good kits out there that girls and boys of all ages can have fun putting together.
    The freedom to create iPhone apps seems to be inspiring creativity in people of all ages and professions. It’s one of the things that will help the iPhone continue to be popular.
