Children's Literature - Lilliam Oliva CollmannEver heard of monster trucks? By reading this book, your child will become an expert! Part of the "Pull Ahead Books-Mighty Movers" series ("Libros para avanzar-Potencia en movimiento"), the translation of this book into Spanish is certain to entertain and inform any five- to nine-year-old who loves trucks. How are monster trucks different from other trucks? Well, they fly through the air, they crush cars, they race in mud, and they are so big they look like monsters. And you can confirm how extraordinary they are by looking at the color photographs of the monster trucks in action! CRUNCH! BRUM, BRUM, BRUM! The young reader will be introduced to a specialized vocabulary in simple and well-written sentences describing the key components that make the truck a monster: its giant tires, thick tread for extra traction, its chassis, colorful body, and noisy motor, which later are defined more precisely in a glossary at the back of the book. Monster trucks, of course, can tip over as they perform daring tricks. The author addresses this point by discussing the safety measures taken by the driver as well the inherent features in the truck that protect the driver. The book concludes with interesting facts about monster trucks, such as if the monster truck landed in a lake, its giant tires would make it float! A labeled drawing of the truck and index follow to make this book an exciting read for little truck lovers!
