Read Alexander Graham Bell Answers the Call Online Free - 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. His father was a speech therapist who invented the Visible Alphabet and his mother was hearing impaired, which only made Aleck even more fascinated by sound vibration and modes of communication.
Naturally inquisitive and inclined to test his knowledge, young Aleck was the perfect person to grow up in the Age of Invention. As a kid he toyed with sound vibrations and began a life of inventing.
This in-depth look at the life and inspiration of the brilliant man who invented the tele-phone is sure to ﬁre up the imaginations of young readers who question why and how things work.
Driven by curiosity and an eagerness to help others, Aleck became a teacher for the deaf. His eventual invention of the telephone proved that he never stopped thinking big or experimenting with sound.
Backmatter includes more information about Bell's inventions, a timeline of his life, a bibliography, and sources for further learning.

This book was fabulous because it taught me a lot about Aleck that I didn't know, specifically about his family growing up and how influenced he was by his mother's hearing loss. Would be a great addition to any library for sure!!
