Beginning Reader Review: Mega Machines by Deborah Lock

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Mega Machines" takes readers to a busy, noisy construction site to watch the bulldozers, diggers and cement mixers in action, constructing a new school. In this Level 1 "DK Reader" children just beginning to read will be part of the action from preparing the site to adding the finishing touches and having a grand opening ceremony. "DK Readers" is a multi-level reading program guaranteed to capture children's interest while developing their reading skills and general knowledge. With nine new exciting titles to choose from this season, kid's ages 4-10 will find the perfect book at their appropriate reading level to help with school projects or independent reading."

My Review: This is a great level one book for Munchkin, it is a little advanced in the fact that the sentences were a little longer and some of the words might be difficult for those who aren't big equipment fans but it was perfect for us. I also liked that this was a non-fiction early reader, it has photographs of various equipment on a big job site and also great descriptions as to what they all do. If you have a big truck fan who might be a little reluctant to read, this might be a great way to draw their interest.
My Rating: Of course this one appeals to Munchkin, the lucky thing is that I grew up around heavy machinery and worked at a coal mine so when Munchkin asks questions beyond what is found in these books I can answer them.  But this book was great for him. We give it a rating of Four Paws.
