Fighter Jets: defending the skies

“New additions to Lynn Peppas' 'Vehicles on the Move' series are particularly notable for their appeal to grades 2-3: an interest level typically not reached in titles about vehicles. Captivating color covers and simple discussions packed with visually appealing pages make these a pick for any collection where kids are fascinated with unusual vehicles...All are fine picks for any elementary-level collection!” —Children’s Bookwatch, 03/12 “Peppas presents basic detailed information about aircraft carriers in a clear and straightforward manner.” —Booklist, 02/12 “These books are 4 more titles in the Vehicles on the Move Series, an informative and well-written series which will spark interest in young readers as they read about some of the military vehicles which they hear about as they listen to the news of what is happening in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan where war has been very much in evidence in recent years. Each page of the books features large brightly coloured illustrations and large print. Short descriptions of the vehicles are given as well as descriptions of how the vehicles are used. A double spread labelling the parts of the vehicle is included in each book. Important vocabulary is highlighted and further explained in the short glossary at the end of the book. A table of contents and a short index are also included...the books are very well done and may act as a catalyst for further research into some of the vehicles mentioned.” —Resource Links, 02/12
