Grade 3–4—These titles provide step-by-step descriptions of how an item makes the journey from individual parts to a complete whole. Each spread includes large color photographs and a few sentences, resulting in a clean, engaging layout. Descriptions occasionally feel uneven. Motorcycles are particularly complicated machines with many parts, and the explanations sometimes make assumptions about previous knowledge of them. It's unfortunate that there's no simple diagram with labeled parts. There is no discussion of how a pizza crust is made or its ingredients, despite a thorough breakdown of tomato sauce. These books are similar in audience appeal and format to the "Made in the USA" series (Gale), but are not repetitive of specific subjects. While not essential, they would be acceptable additions to most collections.—Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
