Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Sulock
DeGezelle's pages are stuffed with full-page photographs of snowplows—both parked and in action. Part of the "Mighty Machines" series, the simple text of this book explains the basics about these giant, powerful machines. It opens by explaining what snowplows do and where they work, then describes the important parts and functions, as well as how snowplows often work together and clear the way for spreader trucks. It ultimately emphasizes how these massive machines make the winter streets safe for travelers. The book introduces early readers to subject-specific vocabulary words that are defined in the glossary. Also included are "Read More," a list of books related to the topic, and an explanation of how readers can find more information on the Internet. With short sentences and large bold type, Snowplows is a natural choice for beginning and reluctant readers. It will surely engage those interested in learning about the world.
