JoAnn Early Macken is a Compass Point Books author.From Booklist:
With large type, short sentences, and full-page color photos of people and machines at work, this introduction to tunnels and their construction is just right for beginning readers seeking nonfiction choices. The minimal sentences discuss types of tunnels before showing, on each spread, a different stage in the construction process, and children will learn the names of each professional involved, such as engineers and geologists, along the way. The text is basic; what works best here are the photos of underground worlds that may encourage kids to look at and think about the structures in their own communities. A short glossary and resource lists close this title in the Pebble Plus: Construction Zone series that will partner well with picture books about subway construction and tunnel building, such as Mary Quattlebaum’s Underground Train (1997). Preschool-Grade 1. --Gillian Engberg
