As the maker movement of tech-based DIY enthusiasts becomes an increasingly important presence in libraries, it's great to have a series of related books targeting young readers. The Makers as Innovators series does just that. Each slender title presents a single topic in a straightforward manner, giving novices a good idea of what's happening without getting bogged down in a great many details. Sidebars offer tips, intriguing facts, and historical perspective. Like the movement itself, the texts communicate a level of energy and involvement that adds to the overall appeal. Page design is simple and attractive, and the illustrations, mainly color photos, are effective. Remember merit badges? Digital Badges introduces the twenty-first-century equivalent and discusses how to design, award, and display them. Libraries looking for materials to support community interest and programming in these areas should consider this useful series, which also includes books on Arduino, e-textiles, game design, and "makerspaces."
