From logs to rubber tires, hot air balloons to space probes, humans have made great strides in developing modes of transportation. Time lines, photographs, and eye-catching digital illustrations make this an engaging, visuals-centric look at history’s planes, trains, and automobiles (and boats and bicycles, too). Titled spreads present an introductory paragraph and captions that expand on the images, as well as occasional sidebars and “That’s Amazing!” or “Did You Know?” boxes with fun facts (“A duck, rooster, and sheep became the first-ever passengers to fly in a Montgolfier hot air balloon.”). Having learned about wheel-less maglev trains and other transportation marvels, readers can test their newfound knowledge with a concluding mix-and-match activity. Back matter includes a glossary, index, and link to publisher-selected Web sites.

Series Review
Like the similarly formatted “How It Works” series, above-average photos and graphic images combine with brief but specific narratives and captions to set these broad surveys apart. Together, All About the Weather and Extreme Weather combine to present a vivid picture of the forces that drive weather and climate (and climate change). Not all of the titles are equally valuable; Earth’s Place in the Sky, for instance, is just another quick tour of the solar system, and Moon missions does not mention China’s Yutu Moon rover but does incorrectly claim that NASA’s planned Moon project was cancelled (actually, that was just the Ares launch vehicle).
