Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
From family cars to sports cars to dragsters, read about different types of cars like the Bugarri Veyron, Hummer, or Rolls Royce Phantom to name just a few. Each layout is a chapter with brief informational paragraphs about automobiles including how a car basically works. There are several color photographs, labeled diagrams, and sidebars. One of the sidebars is a picture of a Lamborghini Gallardo which the Italian police use. Some readers may need guidance to navigate these informational text features along with the table of contents, headings, glossary, index, and vocabulary. The book includes three web sites for additional information about cars; there is a brief description about each web site. This book is one of a series called "Machines on the Move" geared toward high interest topics to encourage reading. Other subjects covered in the series include diggers, submarines, and tractors. No consultant or subject expert is noted for the series. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
