9781491404003: Building the Empire State Building: An Interactive Engineering Adventure (You Choose: Engineering Marvels)

The Roaring 20s are in high gear, and so is skyscraper fever in New York City. People are fascinated by the plans to build the Empire State Building―the world’s tallest building yet. Will you: Be an eager young assistant at the architecture firm Shreve, Lamb, and Harmon, the firm designing the Empire State Building? Join the project as a construction worker high atop the building as it rises above the city? Work as a water boy who carries water to the thirsty construction workers on the project? Experience situations taken from real life. YOU CHOOSE what you’ll do next. The choices you make will either lead you and the project to success―or to failure.

About the Author:

Allison Lassieur has written more than 100 books on many topics, including history, biography, science, and current events. She has also written fiction novels and short stories, puzzles, and activities. When she isn't busy writing, Allison enjoys knitting, spinning, and reading good novels. Allison lives in Trenton, Tennessee with her husband, daughter, and a houseful of pets.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 5-8-These "Choose Your Own Adventure"-style books invite readers to assume roles as architects and builders of sites that set historical records in their magnitude. A bit of introductory history is followed by a stop-and-start account that asks readers to flip to different pages based on the choices they make. The fragmented nature of the series can be confusing, and despite the creative take on the topic, some of the writing is on the dry side. Readers who perservere will be presented with a grim, realistic view of the human cost of these large-scale projects (many of the options end with the death or dismissal of the worker) and some interesting sketches of history. Two "Further Paths to Explore" suggest exercises in reading and writing to aid students with key ideas and details. More ambitious than appealing, these will best serve as supplemental material for classroom units dealing with famous structures.α(c) Copyright 2014.
