Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This Weekly Reader produced series "Going Places" is a fine introduction to trains. Three chapters discuss the various kinds of trains including passenger trains and freight trains. A fourth chapter is dedicated to the different types of power used by trains and the purposes of specially designed train cars. Each chapter provides information on the history and uses of each kind of train as well as predictions for future trains. Photographs or illustrations related to the text appear on every page, enhancing the readability for young children. Ashley includes a table of contents, glossary, index and references for further print and web reading. A solid addition for all libraries. 2004, Weekly Reader, Ages 5 to 8.
—Sharon Oliver
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-These easy-to-read chapter books are packed with crisp, colorful photographs that even nonreaders will enjoy. Bus describes school, city, long-distance, and special (double-decker and shuttle) buses. The second title gives some background on early aviation and modern passenger planes. The discussion of the Concorde does not mention that the aircraft is no longer in operation. The section on special planes provides simple details about helicopters and cargo and military planes. Train offers overviews of the history and use of passenger and freight trains. Steam and electric engines are briefly introduced. Only Plane has a time line; it lists important "firsts." These books are sure to delight beginning readers who have already exhausted all of the transportation titles in your collection.-Christine E. Carr, Lester C.
