Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 1-3. Joining the growing ranks of nonfiction books for young readers, this Holiday House Reader looks at cars, focusing on the days when they were better known as horseless carriages. After introducing early models by Benz, Daimler, the Duryea brothers, and Ford, the discussion turns to the changes brought about by this mode of transportation. Levinson also relates the experiences of early motorists, from their driving clothes to the dusty roads. While the beginning-reader format limits the amount of information, the book presents a good introduction to the subject in a short text and follows up with a glossary of terms such as carriage, steamer, 0 and tiller0 . Rogers' upbeat illustrations add to the book's appeal. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2004 Booklist"
