Synopsis:

More fabulous huge machines for the kids who love them.

Children always get excited watching cranes reach for the heights. Knowing that one person is perched high atop the crane only adds to the thrill and sense of adventure. Cranes are used for lifting almost any heavy load and moving it to a height. They are used to make buildings, bridges and ships. Some are used to stack containers onto ships, trains and trucks. A floating crane might be used for salvaging a sunken ship, and an aerial crane is a specially fitted helicopter that can rescue someone or drop emergency supplies into a disaster area.

The Mighty Machines series features vivid color photographs of enormous machines as they dig, dump, load, pull and lift. Children will thrill at the size of these behemoths and enjoy seeing these vehicles strain under the weight of such tremendous work.

Vivid color photographs of these mechanical marvels at work jump off the page. In large type for young (and old) eyes, the machines, their parts and their uses are concisely described. Glossaries explain essential terms, and suggested activities add to the fun. The big format and vibrant design make these books perfect for kids to read alone or share with a friend.
