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
