 I just recently found a cute little computer
book called
"I can learn about Calculators and Computers"
by Raymond G. Kenyon, Harper & Brothers, 1961
112 pages.
 The chapters are entitled:
    How Early Man Counted and Computed
    The Story of Modern Computers
    Construct Your Own Calculators and Computers -
       - Oriental Abacus
       - John Napier's Bones
       - Slide Rules
       - "Stepped-Wheel" Calculator
       - Digital Computer
       - Analog Computer

 Materials used consist of wood, wire, D-cell
batteries, flashlight bulbs, potentiometers, etc.
 Remember wooden cigar boxes?
