Big Illustrated Book of Transport by Chris Oxlade

Book Description

This is a visual encyclopedia showing how humans have developed ways of travelling on the sea, on land and in the air since the beginning of time. It includes 40 model-making projects and step-by-step experiments that will help you understand exactly how ships, trains, planes and cars work. Learn the scientific facts about travelling at speed, at altitude and in the water. Over 600 dramatic, full-colour photographs and detailed illustrations capture the thrill of travel. It features a journey of discovery for children aged 7-12 years. It also spotlights landmarks in design and inventions that enabled the development of transport through the centuries, and explains how they changed human life. This book provides an in-depth insight into the different types of transport and examines how they have been used for work, trade and leisure. It looks at each method of transportation in turn, examining the developing technologies through the ages and charting discoveries such as the wheel, steam power, the internal combustion engine and jet propulsion. Meet the inventors who made it all happen, and find out what the future holds in store. Powerful photography and inside-view artworks complement lively, informative text and help to explain exactly how ships, trains, motorcars and aeroplanes work. Imaginative step-by-step experiments and model-making projects reinforce the learning experience. This book will immediately capture the interest of independent young readers with enquiring minds and an interest in science.
