Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Lisa Colozza Cocca
Readers of this entry in the "Vehicles on the Move" nonfiction series will come away with a better understanding and greater appreciation for how our roads are made. The title covers the various machines used in the process, including, but not limited to, excavators, backhoe loaders, dump trucks, milling machines, road graders, and road rollers. The author takes readers through the road making process step-by-step, from clearing the trees to painting the lines on the new pavement. The sections explain which machines are used each step of the way. Each machine is described in terms of physical characteristics and use. Full-color photographs give readers an up-close look at the vehicles as well as showing the machines in action. 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 and may be useful as a supplement to a science unit on machines. Reviewer: Lisa Colozza Cocca
