A noteworthy review of Machines at Work from Booklist on July 1, 2008
Train facts and pictures abound in this photo-essay in the Machines at Work series. Young preschoolers wild about these vehicles will especially relish the crisp, full-page glamour shots, which showcase trains in all their technological variety: standard passenger freight cars, with their locomotive engines; trains powered by electricity through overhead wires; bullet trains; and even trains held by magnets above the rails. Children will study the pages, then incorporate what they have learned into their play. A glossary defines key words, and the closing list of books and Web sites will be welcomed by kids whose thirst for train minutiae remains unslaked.
