Children's Literature - Children's Literature
A combination of high-quality, color photographs, drawings and black-and-white illustrations with a well-written text make the titles in "The Transportation Library" series stand out from many other emergent reader books. Words or concepts that might be difficult are defined near the bottom of the page, additional words are found in a one-page "Words to Know" near the end of the book. In this book readers will learn about passenger trains, how they work, and their history. A hands-on activity elucidates a concept from the book. In this title the activity demonstrates friction and why it would slow down a train. There is a short but up-to-date listing of additional books, references to Internet sites and an index. 2000, Capstone, Ages 5 to 8, $15.93. Reviewer: Marilyn Courtot
