Children's Literature - Kris Sauer
A tank is a tank is a tank, right? Wrong, as this book on armored vehicles quickly points out. Traditional tanks are just some of the fighting machines profiled in this offering from the "Vehicles on the Move" series. Young readers will learn the difference between armored vehicles and battle tanks, find detailed pictures of the parts of an armored tank, and the important role different kinds of armor have for the soldiers manning them. Ten different armored vehicles are profiled, including the MI A2 Abrams, the M2 Bradley, electronic warfare vehicles and unmanned, or robotic, vehicles. Speed, weapons capabilities, kinds of armor, and battlefield purposes are profiled for each. Written for young readers at a grade two reading level, chapters and sentences are both short. Unlike many nonfiction books in this genre, this text is written with the understanding the young readers do not have the patience to turn to the glossary to find out what a word means; large concept words are explained in simple terms immediately within the text. A Bobbie Kalman book, a glossary is included for further clarification, along with a table of contents and a brief index. Early elementary classrooms working on transportation units will find this book a welcome addition to their resource library. Reviewer: Kris Sauer
