Booklist Review

Train facts and pictures abound in this photo-essay in the Machines at Work series. Young preschoolers wild about these vehicles will especially relish the crisp, full-page glamour shots, which showcase trains in all their technological variety: standard passenger and freight cars, with their locomotive engines; trains powered by electricity through overhead wires; bullet trains; and even trains held by magnets above the rails. Children will study the pages, then incorporate what they've learned into their play. A glossary defines keywords, and the closing list of books and Web sites will be welcomed by kids whose thirst for train minutiae remains unslaked.--Rochman, Hazel Copyright 2008 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 2-Offered as successors to the 1999 series of the same name (though not all of the volumes correspond), these pictorial surveys pair sharply reproduced photos of heavy-duty working vehicles with simply phrased commentary on the selected machine's common main components and functions printed in large type. The chapter heads are framed as questions, such as "What are tractors?" and "How are trains used?" The final chapter in each volume explains how that type of vehicle is "important," "useful" or some other positive quality--not that young fans of these mechanical behemoths will need any justification to pore over these big, bright images.
