Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 6-9-These books trace technological advances from prehistoric times to the present. Each slim volume covers one broad theme organized into roughly chronological chapters by topic. For example, after chronicling early attempts at flight, Air and Space describes engines and simple rockets, and concludes with sections on satellites and probes, space flights, and future missions. Chapters range in length from two to eight pages. They contain numerous average-quality color and black-and-white photographs, as well as labeled diagrams, maps, and illustrations. "People and Society" boxes highlight notable individuals or events; other sections offer illustrated explanations of important inventions, concepts, and processes. Colorful borders and a variety of fonts are found throughout. The combination of visual elements and sections of additional information add up to a somewhat confusing layout. Dewey decimal call numbers would place these titles throughout the reference section. They would be most useful as overviews on the topics.-Shauna Yusko, St. Monica School, Mercer Island, WA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
