Silverman, Buffy How do Monster Trucks Work? 32 pgs Lerner, 2016. $19.99 NON-FICTION
This book is divided into short and simple chapters about the
different facets that make up a monster truck: what is a monster truck, monster
power, giant tires, built to bounce, and driving the monster. The simple text
explains each concept, there are large bright photographs and labels, and color
backdrops. Also included are diagrams, fun facts, and a glossary.
This book will be fought over by young readers. I have a group
of kindergarteners who are going to be on a wait list for this book. It’s well
written, simple enough to read alone for a first grader while not skimping on
the information. The cover is appealing, all around a great read to add to your
collection on transportation.
