Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - John D. Orsborn
They are the workhorse of the automotive world. Carrying loads exceeding their own weight, pickup trucks have been helping do our work for many years. Due to their rough ride and low gas mileage, pickup trucks were usually owned and used mostly by farmers and construction workers. Nevertheless, automakers decided to reach out to others. Now, there are so many different types of trucks and truck hybrids, it is amazing anyone can decide what they want to purchase. Author Sarah L. Schuette does a good job providing some information on pickup trucks. She informs the reader about what type of road test a pickup truck must pass to make it to the market. She also talks about the different styles and types of trucks. One missing piece is any type of history regarding pickups. While this book is obviously written about the newer pickups on the road, there should always be a bit of history for young readers in order to give them a point of reference. Except for the lack of history, for such a short space Schuette does provide readers with an acceptable overview. Color photographs enhance the information provided. A glossary, index, and resources help the student move further into the subject of trucks. Interestingly, not only does it include specific Web sites, but it also includes the "Fact Hound" site and instructions for doing research—a librarians dream.
