Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Melissa Rife
The large array of vehicles that are used in construction and earth-moving are presented here. Descriptions of the functions for all the different trucks, from dump trucks to hydraulic breakers to mobile cranes will engage readers. Each spread features a different "Earthmover," including a description of the job it does, interesting facts about it, and statistics about weight and height. In addition, there are large photos that often feature workers and cars that give a good perspective on the true size of the earthmovers. One of the best features of this book is the connection shown between the various vehicles. The descriptions effectively describe how each one performs a certain role in a large job. In fact, one of the last pages shows all the vehicles used to create a road and what they do. Throughout the book, some words are bolded and they are presented in a glossary at the end. This glossary also includes pictures. However, there are other words that are explained through the descriptions, such as "bed" and "hydraulic." It is a great way to understand all the different vehicles often just referred to by children as "dump trucks" and "cranes." This book is a fantastic teaching tool for the target audience of seven to twelve and, beyond that, is simply fun to look at the pictures. Also present are a table of contents, an index, and suggestions for further information. This book is part of a four-book series titled "World's Biggest." Reviewer: Melissa Rife
School Library Journal
Gr 3-4– Colorful, close-up photos of the featured machine or structure will draw readers to this attractive series. Titles include nine chapter spreads, each of which has a full-page photo that slightly spills over onto the opposite page, where one or two paragraphs are printed over a fluffy white cloud with a blue sky background. A smaller photo usually appears near the text. Each chapter covers one machine, describing how it is used and providing statistics such as length, height, width, weight, wingspan (Airplanes), and speed (Roller Coaster). Informative captions appear in boxes designed to look like metal plates attached with screws. The texts end abruptly, but are followed by a “More…” page with four or five small photos and captions of additional similar equipment, giving the impression that there was too much material for the allotted space. Earthmovers and Trucks suffer from simplistic vocabulary at times. Earthmovers, for example, vaguely explains hydraulic as “liquid flowing through the machine,” and Trucks refers to ropes or cables as strong cords. Airplanes and Roller Coasters have fewer problems and are acceptable purchases.
