Engineering Power!

Set of 4 titles

Science and engineering meet in this engrossing set! Amazing machines from the past and present are highlighted throughout its pages, including airships, cranes, submarines, and many more. Through understandable text and clear diagrams, readers learn how machines have been built to lift heavy weights, be submerged in deep oceans, travel over rough terrain and fly undetected above the clouds. Text also includes how each machine was developed and the inner workings of modern iterations. Full-color photographs of the most cutting-edge of these machines excite readers about the future of engineering technology.

Engineering Power!

SLJ: The history and evolution of travel is introduced to readers through a familiar format in this series. Each book is filled with illustrations that are labeled to indicate the unique features of the machines and that diagram concept is supported by interesting engineering callouts about their designs. In Machines in the Sky and Machines on Land, Barnham goes with a simple-to-complex organizational scheme that brings readers from hot-air balloons to drones, bicycles to mega machines. Machines at Sea notably does a good job describing how complex engineering like hovercraft and hydrofoils work. With the feel of a simplified Stephen Biesty or David Macaulay book, this series delivers a lot of information in a relatively short amount of time, utilizing cutaways, labels, and informational asides to offer a high level of detail despite the somewhat simplified illustrations. VERDICT An additional purchase, but one that’s sure to see good circulation.
