Reviews

Danielle Ballantyne, Foreword Reviews

“The book’s accessible language enables children to understand the inner workings of everyday objects. ‘Find it’ sections add a scavenger hunt element, and children will love poring over the pages with their trusty red lens in search of secrets.”

Luminous Libro

“The coolest thing about this book is the red lens that is included in the cover. You can remove the lens with its handle and use it to reveal hidden words and illustrations on each page. This lens allows you to see inside the machines, and discover how all the parts work together. I like that the lens has a little compartment in the cover where you can safely store it away. I loved the clever illustrations in this book!”

Kirkus Reviews

"Just the ticket for mechanically curious kids."

Kirkus Reviews

"A detachable acetate eyepiece lets budding engineers peek into buildings, the inner workings of vehicles from bicycles to submarines, and even a human torso."

Clare Dombrowski, Youth Services Review

“Kids enamored with how things work will love this book and others who like interactive books might learn something. It could amaze and entertain a preschooler, but has enough information and detail to engage an elementary school student.”
