Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Karen Porter
This simple, nonfiction text is an introduction to the history and structure of skyscrapers. The easy-to-read text and colorful illustrations make it accessible to very young engineers and city dwellers who are curious about skyscrapers. Inside the front and back covers are illustrations of well known skyscrapers, however an opportunity is missed as no construction dates or heights of the buildings are provided.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-Even though the text is simple, Hunter is able to convey lots of information about skyscrapers. Besides offering a bit of history and identifying a number of these tall buildings, the book includes an overview of how they are constructed. Miller's graphically designed, full-color illustrations with flattened perspectives and boldly colored backgrounds complement the subject. An outline map on the endpapers identifies some of the world's highest buildings. Readers might also enjoy Gail Gibbons's Up Goes the Skyscraper (Four Winds, 1986), which concentrates on the construction of a single building. Chris Oxlade offers more detail for older students in Skyscrapers and Towers (Raintree/Steck-Vaughn, 1997). However, Into the Sky provides the facts on this subject while capturing the excitement inherent in creating huge structures that soar above their surroundings.-Kathy Piehl, Mankato State University, MN
Kirkus Reviews
Hunter (Cross A Bridge, p. 268) offers an accessible, often soaring first look at skyscrapers. Beginning with the ten- story Home Insurance Building in Chicago, the book traces the evolution of tall buildings, concluding with a model for the would-be Sky City 1000 in Japan. Clear, single-sentence explanations for terms such as beams, columns, foundation, pilings meet the needs of the youngest construction-watchers, while the roles of the people behind the structures, engineers and ironworkers, are touched on. Specific buildings are displayed against a world map on the endpapers and in a graph-like spread that visually compares the heights of five towers. With a clean, graphic style similar to Donald Crews's work, Miller's compositions use geometric shapes to fine advantage. Bold black steel and scaffolding cut the flat planes of sky-blue backgrounds, while skewed angles and details such as a light-dotted nighttime skyline add interest. (Picture book/nonfiction. 2-5)
