Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Janis Flint-Ferguson
For children who are going from picture books to informational texts, the "Rev It Up" series provides a format that allows them to enjoy color photography of cars, simple text to read and the elements of nonfiction texts. This edition deals with a highly specialized form of automobile renovation. Begun in California and most associated with the Latino population, the form has spread across the United States. Truly these cars are an art form in their own right, from their low riding chassis to their exquisite paint jobs. The book's layout is much like a picture book, with a color photograph on one page and four lines of text on the other. The text gives general information about the form, the history and identifying elements of a lowrider. The table of contents establishes the book as an informational text, with four chapters, glossary, resources and index. The text has a first grade reading level which means that children from kindergarten through third grade will benefit from its intentional use of words, sentences and format.
