Synopsis

Mighty Machines by Steve Parker

This is an exciting new series that uses 'X-ray' artwork to illustrate the underlying science or technology of familiar structures and systems. The books explore the workings of some key inventions and machinery, such as telecommunications, spacecraft, and diggers, as well as the basic structures of the Earth, animals and the human body. Each title contains: stunning artwork that supports the text and provides a clear and compelling visual aid to learning; a range of text that deliver the facts in an interesting way; and excellent cross-curricular material to support Key Stage 2-3 requirements for science, technology and history.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to
