Engineering: The Riveting World of Buildings and Machines!

Simon Basher and Tom Jackson. Kingfisher, $14.99 (128p) ISBN 978-0-7534-7310-8
This addition to the long-running Basher Science series introduces concepts in engineering, visually represented by chunky, anime-style figures. Divided into seven color-coded categories, the book introduces members of the “Mechanical Mob” (which include Ramp, Lever, and Pump), “Design Dynamos” such as Ergonomics and Artificial Intelligence (“I’m still relatively young, and my first real job is to suggest products and ads you might like on the Internet”), and dozens of other tangible and intangible concepts, structures, and devices. The upbeat, first-person narratives and quirky art create an inviting way for children to learn about the breadth of what engineering can mean. Ages 10–14. (Jan.)
