Full Text Reviews:
School Library Journal - 04/01/2018 Gr 3–5—This succinct but comprehensive series introduces the histories of groundbreaking inventions. In Airplane, readers learn the history of flight from Leonardo da Vinci's flying machine to modern jets; Computer traces the evolution of the machine from its humble beginnings as an abacus to modern laptops. In each volume, technical information is provided, which will greatly enhance readers' understanding of the magnitude of the achievements. The images, a mix of photos and diagrams, are of good quality and often demonstrate the concepts explained in the text, rather than merely depicting them. VERDICT History meets STEM in these thorough volumes. A fine addition to most collections. - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
