How Fast Does it Go? (The Speed of Things): The Speed of 20 Types of Transport from Tricycles to Cars to Space Ships by Lilley Light is a charismatic children's pictorial book that is chock full of intriguing information, facts, and pictures of vehicles and other transportation devices that gain speed with movement. Author Lilley Light draws her readers in deep with her fun and educational book on the naturally intriguing subjects of speed and transport. With 20 different types of transport being discussed, from a simple tricycle to a space shuttle, readers will pay full attention.
Society is often attracted to the finer things in life, such as transport. Historically, human beings have only set the bar higher for themselves with the amazing inventions and top speeds that have been achieved and exceeded throughout the years. The author offers readers a brief history of each form of transport, an array of records and speed information to go along with a vivid photograph. For example, did you know that the bicycle was invented in 1817, but wasn't commercially recognized until 1863, 46 years later! The bicycle in those days was made of wood and had a very large front wheel and a tiny back wheel. The operator sat very high in the air, going 10 to 20 miles per hour when momentum was gained.
Lilley Light offers readers a fun and intellectual book to read individually or share with others. The book is a wonderful read, offering facts, history, records, and photographs. The book is said to be for children, but an older reader is sure to enjoy it just the same.
