Overview

There are many different ways for people to travel from one place to another. If they just need to travel to work or school, they can ride a bicycle, drive a car, or take a bus. People who want to travel from one city or country to another can travel on a train, a boat, or an airplane.

On the Move, a title in the Ladders series, looks at machines that roll, float or fly and move people from place to place. Giant drawings of different types of transportation are surrounded by details about how fast they can go, how far they can travel, and how they work.

"It's a fact!" boxes throughout the book feature unique travel trivia, and there is a fun story to read, The Bus Driver Who Thought He Was Bored. After reading all about transportation, readers can test their knowledge with puzzles, vocabulary lists, a true or false quiz, and big search-and-find scenes with questions about what is going on in the pictures.

Introduces various modes of transportation, including bicycles, buses, and helicopters. Includes related story and activities.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-On the Move presents various modes of transportation, including a bicycle, car, train, ship, and helicopter. Each double-page spread contains a simple introductory paragraph and a large cartoon drawing of the featured vehicle, along with labels highlighting some of its characteristics. One or two captioned full-color photographs provide additional examples. Occasionally, sidebars tout the "world's highest truck" or the "world's longest car" without providing specific details about the size of these wonders or where they can be found. A short story about a bus driver who tries out different jobs in the transportation field appears at the end, along with two puzzles (an easy maze and one that asks children to identify close-up pictures) and a true-or-false quiz. The second title follows the same format, but gets a little more specific by discussing particular trucks (e.g., bulldozer, crane, fire engine). Here, the story deals with a contest to see who can make the best guess about the fantastic capabilities of the vehicles being used at a construction site. The illustrations in both offerings are clear and the layouts are nice and clean. Unfortunately, not much information is provided and the texts are often a bit sketchy. While the puzzles and look-and-find spreads might encourage children to take a closer look at the books, the short stories seem pointless and out of place.-Joy Fleishhacker, formerly at School Library Journal Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
