Kid's Korner: Building a Bridge and Demolition (Book Reviews)

Title: Building a Bridge
Author: JoAnn Early Macken

Publisher: Pebble Plus/Capstone Press

About the book: How are bridges made? Put on your hard hat and discover the people, tools, and machines that help drivers get where they need to go.





Title: Demolition
Author: JoAnn Early Macken

Publisher: Pebble Plus/Capstone Press

About the book: Kaboom! Watch as old buildings crumble before your eyes and discover the people, tools, and machines needed for demolition.



My thoughts: This is a great series of books for preschoolers - either those needing to be read to or early readers. There are not a lot of words on each page and very "in the moment" pictures of buildings blowing up - cranes working - men pouring cement, etc. Each book has a nice glossary at the end of some of the words that would be great for those beginner readers. There is also an Internet site - www.facthound.com - where you can search by grade level - either by subject or by book ISBN number. I put in the ISBN for Building a Bridge and it brought up related sights such as - how to build a paper bridge. Lots of fun for those curious little ones who stumble across something they want to know more about - this can get them started!

My husband would have been the first in line to buy these for our son if they'd been around way back then.
