See How They Work & Look Inside Big Rigs by Jon Richards- ADVISABLE

Richards, Jon. See How They Work & Look Inside Big Rigs, PICTURE BOOK. Flowerpot Press, 2015. $7.99. All kinds of different trucks are highlighted with pictures, labels, descriptions, and summaries of what they are used for. There are different kinds of tankers, construction site trucks, trailers, cranes, and loading trucks. I had no idea there would be so many different types of big rigs. There is a glossary of truck terms included in the back of the book. This series is so interesting and really well done. I’ll repeat what I said about the firetruck edition: any student interested in finding out more about how things work, engineering, mechanics, or fighting fires, will be very intrigued by this book. K-3, EL- ADVISABLE. Reviewed by Shay, High School Librarian
