Colossus: The World’s Most Amazing Feats of Engineering

We rated this book:


This book has simple pictures, introductory paragraphs, and fun facts about engineering marvels from around the globe. The fun facts include sizes, statistics, and stories about the location or thing. It is very interesting and I learned a lot from it. It could be more organized, but the jumble of facts on each page seems to be intentional.

I recommend this as a first book for research, to excite a young researcher in elementary school who needs to write an essay or make a presentation. The pictures are simple and would be good templates for simple, hand-drawn pictures. I think every elementary school library should have a copy. If elementary school teachers want to do a unit on engineering, I think that this would be a good book to share with a class.

I think that families with young children should purchase this book, along with libraries. It is very well written. The pictures are brightly colored and the words are simple enough for preschoolers to enjoy this book. Colossus is a beautiful children’s introduction to the wonders of engineering. I recommend it for kids aged five to nine.
