You can get them from your library, local book store or online for reading time!

Cranes (Mighty Machines) by Amanda Askew

Children always get excited watching cranes reach for the heights.  Cranes are used for lifting almost any heavy load and moving it to a height. They are used to make buildings, bridges and ships. Some are used to stack containers onto ships, trains and trucks. A floating crane might be used for salvaging a sunken ship, and an aerial crane is a specially fitted helicopter that can rescue someone or drop emergency supplies into a disaster area.  The Mighty Machines series features vivid color photographs of enormous machines as they dig, dump, load, pull and lift. Children will thrill at the size of these behemoths and enjoy seeing these vehicles strain under the weight of such tremendous work.
