Balloons Over Broadway is a biography of Tony Sarg by Melissa sweet. Sarg was an immigrant who loved puppets and marionettes. He was a bright boy and eventually used his talents for Macy’s holiday parade as it evolved over years into what we know today. He was an inventor and able to learn from and change his designs as time went on. An important skill for STEM, right? This book would be great for STEAM classes!
