On the Road by Jane Shuter
Designed specially for young independent readers, aged between 6 and 8, the Perspectives collection combines core non-fiction features - including an emphasis on research skill - with a visual design that encourages readers to look at these topics in a different way. Travel through Time is a cross-curricular series that studies the history of transport and looks at the changing ideas and technology of transport. Each book in the series follows a narrative structure as it traces the development of transport around the world. The book includes biographies of key figures in the development of transport, and relates the reader's current experiences to those that happened in history.
