How to Build a Car (Technical Tales)
In How to Build a Car, three unlikely friends--Eli, a mouse; Phoebe, a sparrow; and Hank, a frog--decide to build a small motorcar together. The story follows the friendly trio as they learn all about how a car works and how it is constructed. Detailed illustrations show the inner workings of the car, teaching children the basics of how each part works together to get the car moving. Through hard work and perseverance, Eli, Phoebe, and Hank learn about both car mechanics and teamwork as they build a miniature racer. With the help of this sweet story, children will learn the different parts and functions of a car.
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.
