Summary

Summary

Today, even young children know how to take pictures, but a century ago this was not the case. Cameras were too big, too expensive, and too complicated for most people. George Eastman changed all that when he decided to make a camera that would be as easy to use as a pencil. Children will be fascinated by the story of the man who invented the word Kodak along with the first of his many easy-to-use cameras. With his cameras and American film, Eastman popularized picture-taking and turned photography into everybody's favorite hobby.
