Gr 2–5—Truck fans rejoice! This series provides students with a glimpse of some of the toughest trucks on the road today. Showcasing vehicles from industry-leading manufacturers, such as Chevrolet, Ford, and Dodge, each book takes readers on an off-road journey through the truck's history, recent developments, features, technology, and future possibilities. Clear-cut language and concise sentences make the content easily accessible to readers of varying abilities, while the glossy images reflect the text well. Specific details, including speed and horsepower, are included in sidebars that also address ways to identify each model as well as the specifications for the 2018 models.
VERDICT Although aimed at "reluctant" readers, this series has the potential to appeal to a broad audience. Robust collections may want to consider.
