About this title
"Features the fastest and most amazing rescue vehicles on land, in the air, and on the water. Provides stats and facts on each model of vehicle, including capacity, size, and cost"--From School Library Journal:
Gr 2-5-In each of these unabashed browsing items (they don't contain introductions or conclusions and the text is spare), a spread is devoted to one of 13 high-interest vehicles. For example, Vehicles has sections on the Bronto Skylift fire truck, R44 Helicopter, and Marine Protector Class Coast Guard patrol boat, among other machines. On each spread, a large photo of the melodramatically posed machine is flanked by smaller pictures and text boxes with "Stats & Facts" or "Did You Know?" tidbits of information. Though some entries aren't all that "wild" (a John Deere combine harvester in Trucks, for instance, and a Chinese junk in Boats), they're all eye candy, making this set equally enticing for new or reluctant readers.α(c) Copyright 2011.
