From School Library Journal:

Gr 4-6-Though far from comprehensive, these quick skims over the historical development of common gadgets and vehicles do dish up entertaining tidbits while assembling broad general pictures. In each volume a wide time line runs beneath closer looks at significant inventions or incidents. Car, for instance, takes readers from chariots to solar-powered and driverless vehicles, while the chronology begins with the invention of coach suspension in the 1500s and ends with a new speed record for electric cars set in 2013. Along the way, the author notes the appearance of the differential gear, diesel engines, driving tests, windshield wipers, highways, GPS, and related advances along the way. Each volume closes with a superficial glimpse into the future. Comprised of jumbles of small photos or images, labels, captions, inset boxes, and general observations in various type sizes, many of the spreads have an overcrowded look. VERDICT Brief overviews ideal for browsers and sparking further interest.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
