-- Tells the colorful story of the telegraph's creation and remarkable impact, and of the visionaries, oddballs, and eccentrics who pioneered it, from the eighteenth-century French scientist Jean-Antoine Nollet to Samuel F. B. Morse and Thomas Edison. The electric telegraph nullified distance and shrank the world quicker and further than ever before or since, and its story mirrors and predicts that of the Internet in numerous ways.

Image: Mary Had a Little Lamb, by Sarah Josepha Hale, Tomie dePaola. Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers (January 26, 2004)Mary Had a Little Lamb Published
-- The nursery rhyme was first published (as opposed to written) by the Boston publishing firm Marsh, Capen and Lyon, as an original poem by Sarah Josepha Hale on May 24, 1830, and was inspired by an actual incident. As a girl, Mary Sawyer kept a pet lamb, which she took to school one day at the suggestion of her brother. A commotion naturally ensued. Source
Read: Mary Had a Little Lamb, by Sarah Josepha Hale, Tomie dePaola
-- Since this nursery rhyme first appeared in 1830, children have loved it. Tomie DePaola uses his signature folk art style and sets the poem in a traditional 19th century New England setting. The result is an endearing interpretation of the little lamb that followed Mary to school and how the teacher handled it.
