Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
This mid-level early reader focuses on the history of the automobile industry. The chronological organization begins with earlier forms of transportation and continues with the invention of the automobile in Germany and the US, the development of the assembly line in Detroit, and early days of family driving with open cars-"Mama wore a long coat, goggles, and a beehive bonnet. . . . The children wore hoods. So did their pet dog!" The history continues up to the current era, with mention of gas shortages, pollution, and the development of hybrid cars. Woven into the narrative is the sociological impact of the automobile with an eye to the young reader's interests. Watercolor illustrations on each page provide accurate historical references to the early autos in their respective settings. Additional information includes a time line and a glossary of terms. A topic with definite appeal, full of fascinating details. (Easy reader. 5-8)
