“Explore the stories of real Wisconsin people” through Badger Biographies Series published by the Wisconsin State Historical Society. These books for 4th and 5th graders feature “famous and not-so-famous people that made a difference in our history”. A 2012 addition to this series, Les Paul: Guitar Wizard, is now in our collection. Born in Waukesha, WI Paul was a musician and inventor. Paul learned at an early age how to take apart contraptions and put them back together, including a radio, a record player and a player piano! Designed for teachers and students, the book includes a reading group guide with activities, Les’s Timeline, and a glossary of terms. Great black and white photos accompany this enjoyable life’s story.
