Each book in this Community Connections set describes how a particular type of structure is built. Introductory chapters provide brief descriptions of each structure and short explanations of their functions and uses; succeeding chapters describe the planning, construction, and components of the structures. The text is accurate, concise, and appropriate for the intended audience. Large, colorful photographs on every page add interest and clarity to the text. Each book contains an index, a “Find Out More” section containing short lists of books and websites, and a glossary. As in the other books in the Community Connections series, the pronunciations in the glossary are unconventional and sometimes misleading. Despite that drawback, this attractive and informative set would be a valuable addition to a school library.
