Product Details


Using simplified explanations, readers trace a book called Special Delivery as it travels from an overseas factory. . . . Many of the diverse workers throughout are named and individualized, personalizing these often opaque systems and subtly teaching children about everything from jobs to international trade networks. Bright, blocky illustrations depict a wide variety of heavy machinery, sure to enthrall children who can’t get enough of trains, boats, and cranes. Will elegantly satisfy the curiosity of children always asking how things work.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

An excellent tool to use with young children when tackling a unit on transportation. Faber approaches this story in a universal manner, by providing a big picture view of the many pieces of the global supply chain—from factory to consumer—and making it intergenerational to boot. . . . With its focus on all the big ships, trucks, trains, and cranes, kids will undoubtedly lap this one up.
—School Library Connection

Dynamic; anyone interested in transportation in all its modes will be fascinated by the path of one book as it travels the globe. A compelling glimpse into the ways of modern industry, and very engaging.
