Toy Stories – School Library Journal, Series Made Simple

Talk about shelf appeal! Graphically striking covers featuring favorite toys lure readers into these succinct overviews of the development and continuing evolution of each product line. And the eye-catching design doesn’t stop at the covers—interior spreads feature large typefaces and chunky display fonts, with plenty of white space and full-bleed captioned photos of products, manufacturing equipment, and creators. Although the text is spare, there is still room for some unexpected side trips and twists; for instance, readers learn that the company that made Crayola crayons also supplied carbon for tires, and LEGO used to be made of wood. A two-page time line, glossary, and index introduces new readers to essential reference book structures. VERDICT Clear winners in early reader nonfiction.
