Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
This title, an entry in the nonfiction "Vehicles on the Move" series, explores the world of monster trucks. It begins by explaining some of the basic features of a monster truck such as giant wheels and a sturdy truck body. The author includes a good deal of information on the safety features, such as see-through panels on the truck floor, and on the personal safety precautions drivers take, such as wearing protective clothing. The book also includes a section on monster truck events, such as stunt shows and races. Other sections cover the first monster truck and several famous, specially painted monster trucks. Full-color photographs throughout the book add to the appeal of this title. The photos expand the audience for this book by drawing in children who will browse through the pictures and captions even though the text may be a bit too challenging for them. This book includes the features found throughout the series, including informative captions, a glossary, an index, and a table of contents. This book is sure to appeal to elementary aged boys in particular. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca
