The family in this book is going on a vacation. They drive in a car, ride on an escalator, take a ferry across the water, and more. They discover the many ways that addition is a part of daily life. They even use addition to count taxis and to compare the cost of riding the subway for the day and the week. Hop on the double-decker bus and join them on their adventure through the city.
Bikes, balloons, trains, ships, and more - this book is filled with the many different ways to get where you need to go. Use addition to figure out how many people are on board a cruise ship or how long it took to build two famous railways in Russia. You will even learn about the biggest jet in the world. What is your favorite way to get around?
Trains take you where you need to go, and they move food and other goods from one place to another. Trains are full of shapes, too, which make them fun to look at. You can find circles on the train's wheels and rectangles on the railroad tracks and railroad signs. There are even shapes at the train station. Some ceilings have circles or triangles and some floors have squares. Look inside. Can you find any more?
Learn the many steps that must be followed to make a car! With vibrant, detailed photos, informational text, and a chart to show steps of the assembly line, even the most reluctant reader will want to learn more about this fascinating factory!
Featuring basic concepts, this nonfiction book teaches beginning readers different modes of travel--from bikes and cars to sleds and buses--while incorporating informational text with colorful and engaging images that will delight early readers!
Did you know that airports are the perfect place to find shapes? Sometimes shapes are used because they are a good design choice, such as circles and triangles on the ceiling. But other times, shapes are used to offer support and strength to the building. Look inside to see if you can ¬find the many shapes hidden inside airports from around the world. Take a look outside the airport, too. What shapes do you see on the runway?
