Imagine a world without cars and computers, or toys and televisions, or movies and microwaves. Then imagine a world without engineers. Engineering the ABC's answers questions about now everyday things work and how engineering relates to so many parts of a child's daily life. In an entertaining and engaging way, this book shows how engineers shape our world.

Why Engineering for Children?
Children interact with the human-made world 98% of the time and engineers make the human-made world possible, yet most children do not even hear the word engineer until age 10 or 11. And if they do, it's usually someone who drives a train.

Engineers do so much more than just drive trains. They have a part in just about everything you see around you - from your computer, to your home, to your phone, to your shoes - engineers have a part in it all.

Help your child understand their human-made world, help them understand engineering!
