Gr. 4-6. Children who have gone beyond the stage of simply being fascinated by the way vehicles look will find these books in the Take It Apart series full of information on the way they actually work. Proceeding from outside in, each book is chockablock with cutaways and diagrams, all well labeled, which explore the vehicle's various systems: from the engine to the galley in Plane; from the engine to the dashboard and the body in Car. Fact boxes give readers a break from the technical stuff. There are a few slipups: in Car, for example, there's no mention of the combustion chamber, and although the word odometer appears on a spread showing the parts of a dashboard, it's never explained in the book. Yet, curious kids with a love of things mechanical will eagerly grab these, and for the most part, they'll come away better informed. Stephanie Zvirin
