Blow It Up!

Blow It Up!
Thomas Kingsley Troupe
Every little boy will love reading a book about explosions and blowing things up. Bright colorful photographs show how the building, bridge, or structure looks as it's being demolished. The author has written in simple words so the early reader can read the book for himself. But the text is also informative as it explains how the workers get the building to blow up and what happens after the explosion. There is a glossary at the back of the book to explain any words that the reader might not have known before starting the book. There is a list of books that will compliment this book. There is also a list of internet websites that children can check out, with the help of their parents, to learn more about demolition and the publishing company. Parents and teachers will love the book because it encourages young readers to enjoy books while providing something that they can have fun reading about.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
