From the nostalgic sound of a locomotive chugging along to the whoosh of China’s levitating maglev, it’s hard not to be awed by trains. In simple, engaging text and illustrations, McMahon and Mora present a brief history of this mode of transportation. Integral to the book are five experiments children can create; four have detailed instructions; the fifth requires Internet access to complete. Each experiment ties in well with a particular type of train, features clear instructions, and offers safety precautions. The experiments could serve as the beginnings of science-fair projects for upper-elementary students. The book includes a glossary and an index. Though published in Canada, the only U.S.-centric slight is the lack of a mention of the Transcontinental Railroad. If this first book in the Machines of the Future series is an indication of quality, then it will be well received by both educators and children. Grades 4-7. --J. B. Petty
A hands-on discovery of the science behind this mode of transportation. --North Bay Nugget
