Gr 1-3-Machine-obsessed students will gravitate toward these titles, which introduce different vehicles and explain how they work. Each book ends with either an outstanding example of the machine or additional fascinating facts. Unfortunately, in Earthmovers and Cranes the photographs in this section are obscured by the text. On each spread, a few simple sentences are illustrated with a stock photo or diagram. Glossary words are displayed in bold font. Some equipment mentioned in the text is not pictured or labeled (for example, a submarine periscope or the propeller of an aircraft carrier). Aircraft-carrier crew members are referred to as soldiers rather than sailors.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
