Summary

Summary

"There are dump trucks with tires as high as two grown men! These enormous trucks could never share a street with other vehicles. This explains why "off-road" is how they roll. They are built for construction sites. Check out some massive dumpers in this title. This title includes: carefully leveled text, full-spread photography, table of contents, glossary, bibliography, and index!"

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-2-Aimed at newly fledged readers, these galleries pair barely average quality photos with one- to three-sentence descriptive captions. ("Monster trucks race along tracks. Their tires kick up mud.") Along with drab or faded colors, the pictures rarely include human figures or some other measure to show scale. Furthermore, the appellation "monster" is overstretched, as Cars is actually about racing cars and Trains includes a random mix of standard passenger locomotives and freight trains. The subjects may be high-interest, but, considering the competition and mediocre production values, this set is supplemental. (c) Copyright 2013.
