This book is an excellent addition to children’s libraries, whether they are homeschooled or attend traditional educational institutions.

Modes of transportation in the modern world are for the most part efficient, fast, and reliable. But to this day versions of transportation apparatuses that are powered by human and animal energy, still serve humanity. In this Modes of Transportation: ABC Book of Rhymes the past and the present intermingle. From the Camel to the Ute, from the Stage Coach to the X’trapolis, from the Ornithopter to the Airplane, and from Zip?-Lines to Mountains Bikes, you’ll find them all here.

A bonus section is included in the back of the Kindle edition contains a bit of history and trivia about each of the featured transportation apparatus.

The kids book without pictures! Who says a kid’s book needs pictures to be fun?

A Different Book delivers a fun, colorful, interactive way to read a traditional book. The message is – it’s fun to be different. 

Beyond the message, you can also help your child learn to follow directions while reading the book in a unique way. It does get tricky, which is the fun part. The physical end of the book is really the middle and the end of the reading is found in the middle.  
*Spoiler alert * there is an upside down flip.
