DK Readers: Extreme Machines (Level 4: Proficient Readers)

Extreme Machines by Christopher Maynard. They were built to conquer land, sea, and air. Read about the biggest, fastest, most incredible machines in the world.

From School Library Journal
Grade 3-6-Maynard looks at machines from drag cars to helicopters. While part of the "Eyewitness Readers" series, the vocabulary and sentence structure are more challenging than most beginning readers can easily handle, and the text is dense. The vivid illustrations, all showing vehicles on the move, make this a visually appealing book. Sidebars on each page present additional facts. There are no comparisons; readers learn that Le Mans cars are just over three feet high, but they aren't told the height of standard cars. At other times, they are given facts with no explanations, such as why engines are positioned behind the driver in racing cars. This overview of an interesting subject makes great demands of its audience.
