The Great Big Book Of Mighty Machines by Jean Coppendale, Ian Graham


The Great Big Book Of Mighty Machines by Jean Coppendale, Ian Graham

A richly illustrated book about the big machines kids love.

Kids love big machines: watching real machines do real work, playing with toy machines, reading and talking about all kinds of machines. The bigger, the better!

The Great Big Book of Mighty Machines is one big and mighty book about the massive moving machines that kids love: monster trucks, dump trucks, fire trucks, tractors, big bikes, cranes, trains and airplanes! One big bundle of mightiness.

Vivid color photographs of machines at work jump off the page. Large, easy-to-read type describes the machines, their parts and what they are used for. Red arrows point out special features. Glossaries explain essential terms, and suggested activities, like quizzes, what to draw and pick the picture, add to the fun.


A visual feast for young gearheads. -- Gillian Engberg Booklist (12/01/2009)

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.
