Whoosh! by Chris Barton illustrated by Don Tate*

Lonnie Johnson's Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions
Mr. Barton shares how Lonnie was into building and inventing as a  young boy and how he persevered to pursue his dream of becoming an engineer and inventor (even though a "test" said he would not be a good engineer).
Readers will see firsthand the importance of perseverance and a good work ethic via Lonnie's life.
I remember my brother saving money to purchase his first super-soaker so it was fun to read about the inventor!
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
