    1 thought on “Bertha Takes a Drive: How the Benz Automobile Changed the World

    1. I'm a big fan of books that highlight the actions of brave, clever women. Jan Adkins has done an admirable job of telling one story from the life of one such women. I had to laugh at the determination of this woman, Bertha Benz, to prove to both the church and Emperor Wilhelm II that her husband's invention, the Benz motorwagen, has the potential to change lives for the better and isn't the threat they think it is. She sneaks out with her two teenage sons and makes her way across bumpy, rough te [...]

    2. In 1888 Germany, Bertha Benz makes the risky decision to drive her husband's car, the Benz Motorwagen, to her grandmother's house, 60 miles distant in the town of Pforzheim, without the benefit roads made for automobiles. Along the way, the ingenious Bertha solves an internal-combustion-engine problems that the ingenious Bertha and invents the brake shoe along the way. A lively story of ingenuity and celebration on an unsung woman hero.

    3. This episode in the life of Bertha Benz is a great story. The true facts listed during the story and at the end of the book are fascinating. I never knew a car could go 119 mph in 1928 until now. I also never imagined that the German government and religions would be opposed to people being able to go wherever they wanted when they wanted.

    4. Bertha Benz, the wife of Karl Benz, the inventor of the Benz automobile in the 1880’s, defies authorities trying to stifle the automobile fearing it will reduce their power over the people. Fascinating bit of history.

    5. Learned new things and enjoyed the interesting timeline of the automobile evolution in the back. Great to have a clever, problem solving, spirited woman driving one of the first "Motorwagens." Good author note sharing how the story was told and what had to be imagined from the research done.

    6. A lively account of the first test drive of Karl Benz's motor car against the wishes of the mayor of the town. Detailed, energetic illustrations pair nicely with the text.
