PreS-Gr 1—Popular construction trucks for beginners. Each book starts with four images of a part of the vehicle and its name; readers are encouraged to keep an eye out for them as they read the book. Full-page photographs of the machine and close-ups of the different elements are accompanied by two or three simple sentences explaining how it works. The well-translated text keeps kids engaged by asking questions and making exclamations. At the end of each book readers are asked if they spotted the images and words suggested at the beginning.
VERDICT Young "things that go" enthusiasts will be satisfied.
