Rate this:
"Earle Dickson and his new bride Josephine begin their lives together. The end. (Not really. There's more.) Josephine has a proclivity for injuring herself. Earle attaches cotton to long strips of adhesive tape, telling Josephine to cut off a length when she needs one. Since Earle works as a cotton buyer at Johnson & Johnson, he shares his idea. They're a big hit. The end. (Again, not really!) After a few false starts (much like the hilarious "the end"s in this story), the Band-Aid is developed and becomes a massive hit. The end. (Really.)"-- Provided by publisher.

Grades 1-3. It’s hard to imagine, but there was a time when there was no such thing as Band-Aids. This is the story of how a cotton buyer and an accident-prone cook combined to invent the Band-Aid.
