How to Build a Motorcycle (Technical Tales)
Eli, Phoebe, and Hank once again join forces to build another miniature vehicle--a motorcycle!
How to Build a Motorcycle continues the Technical Tales series, where a group of three unlikely friends--a rat, a sparrow, and a frog--come together to build another vehicle--a motorcycle! As they start working, they encounter many unexpected obstacles, teaching them (and the reader) about the different parts that make a motorcycle work. Detailed illustrations explain the overall functions of the engine, clutch, brakes, distributors, as well as many other parts of the motorcycle. Through hard work and perseverance, the three friends learn about mechanics and teamwork as they work together to build a miniature motorcycle.
These full-color illustrated books provide adventure stories that help explain the fundamental design features of motorcycles, cars, and airplanes. Each volume features a storyline that centers on a team of mice on a mission to build a vehicle. These mice must combine mechanical skills with teamwork and cooperation as they strive to achieve their goals. You could entitle this series, ‘Applied Mechanical Science for Children,’ but perhaps these non-consumable books should just be called a fun and stimulating adventure for young readers.
