Gr. 3^-5. For the curious among us, the process from design to actual purchase and use of a product is fascinating. The latest in the How It's Made series examines the bicycle, from the first--a heavy, brakeless wooden object shaped like a horse or lion--to the sleek machines of today. A mix of sepia and multicolor illustrations and colored photographs sprinkles a text that not only traces the bicycle's production, but also guides children through minor bike repairs. Unfortunately and probably unavoidably, the vocabulary needed to explain a bicycle's construction is advanced, and the syntax complex; thus, less-proficient readers will likely have a difficult time understanding the text. In spite of this reservation, the book is still an excellent one, worthy of purchase. Frances Bradburn
