Series Made Simple

Bright photos and simple text make these latest entries to the Bullfrog family welcome additions. City Trains includes information on subways (like the London Underground) and above-ground trains (like the Chicago L). Freight Trains looks at all the different kinds of cargo transported by these behemoths. High-speed trains move fast to carry passengers to their destination, but monorail trains go slowly so people can enjoy the view. The inner workings of maglev trains are described simply enough for the youngest readers to understand. Passenger trains take both long and short journeys. The people in the photos are wonderfully diverse and happy to be traveling by train. Glossary terms with picture clues help readers add new words to their vocabulary. VERDICT Sure to be a hit everywhere; a first purchase series.
