Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
George and Johnny have arrived to work at the gold mine. They wear safety gear and descend into the mine on a train. Once below, a large drill is creating a large tunnel and larger rocks are broken into smaller pieces by a jackhammer. The boulders are loaded onto a truck and taken out of the mine. George and Johnny take a lunch break with the other miners. One of them accidently overturns a lamp and they lose their light, but all the helmets are equipped with emergency lights. As luck would have it, the place where Johnny dropped the lantern exposes a new vein of gold. They set up charges to blast the rocks and all escape to safety before the big explosion. After the dust settles, the newly blasted rocks are full of gold. From what I have read about gold mining, it is hot laborious work and large equipment often cannot transport the gold bearing ore. If readers are really interested in the gold mining process, there are other books that can provide a more realistic picture of the process. Part of the "Lego City" series which is a subseries of Scholastic Readers. This text has been identified as Reading Level 1, Guided Reading Level H, and Lexile 330L. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
