Boston College graduate Jenna Grodzicki has written a biography for young readers about auto industry pioneer Henry Ford. In The Story of Henry Ford (Rockridge Press, 2022), readers learn that as a young boy Ford loved to take things apart and figure out how they worked. Grodzicki shares how this curious child grew up and invented creative new ways to assemble cars and made them more affordable for the first time. The Story of Henry Ford is illustrated by Katya Longhi. This is the third biography for young readers written by Grodzicki, a library media specialist and author of both fiction and nonfiction children’s books. Other biography subjects have been Princess Diana and Babe Ruth.
