Cars, Trains, Ships & Planes: A Visual Encyclopedia of Every Vehicle Reviews
Genre: This nonfiction book would be placed under the informational nonfiction genre. This book provides students with information on not only trains, which connects to the fiction "twin text," but it also provides information on other types of transportation that they might be interested in as well.Target Audience: The target audience for this book would likely be students in the intermediate grades (3-6). I would choose this grade level because of the amount of text in the book. The information presented in the book is not difficult to understand, however there is a lot of text on each page. If I gave this book to younger students, such as PK-3rd graders, I would be concerned that they would get overwhelmed by the amount of information and lose interest. I paired this nonfiction book with the picture book "How to train a train" by Jason Carter Eaton. This picture book caught my attention because it is a story of a young boy explaining how trains work. He does so by teaching readers how to ride a train in silly ways, as though the train is an animal they are trying to ride. I thought these two books would go well together in a unit on transportation. If teaching this unit, I would read the fiction story aloud to the students as a group. I would then be able to encourage students to think of their favorite type of transportation and use the nonfiction books, such as "Cars, Trains, Ships, and Planes" to write a story explaining how to ride it. This would be a unique way for students to be creative and learn about different types of transportation at the same time.
This is a really cool book that shows the history and current use of several modes of transportation (more than what is listed in the title). Fun for boys (and girls or tomboys) of all ages! This book was published by DK, in cooperation with Smithsonian.Excellent!
Eye candy or any kids who loves vehicles. What makes this volume better than most is that it also includes action-shots of awesome vehicles around the world with great captions.
