Review quote

Children's Literature The set should be just the ticket for the nursery school market. Kathleen Karr - Children's Literature The "Amazing Machines" collection for tots covers vehicles that roar and grunt, fly and sail, or merely shove and carry. Done up in tidy verse with characters that borrow quite a bit from Richard Scarry, the page-turners are colorfully illustrated and sport reinforced binding with a fair amount of wear in it. Rabbit, Bird, and Mouse strut their stuff on the farm using the plow, the harrow, the roller, the seed drill, the mower, and the bailer. For grain crops they demonstrate a combine. Then there is the fun of hauling the harvest to market. A one-page picture dictionary completes the package. The set should be just the ticket for the nursery school market. 2003, Kingfisher, Ages 3 to 5.show more
