Reviews
Transportation Inventions: Moving Our World Forward

“Each chapter features short biographies of pioneers in each field that gives a human dimension to the science. The book concludes with a timeline of developments in the field as well as a glossary and index. The book is focused towards upper elementary readers. Pictures of scientists, with women well–represented, diagrams and photos help to clarify and extend the discussion. Kids will be intrigued with the book as they dream about making a reservation on Virgin Galactic.” -NSTA Recommends, 02/14
