Machines at Work: Crane published by Dorling Kindersley

Aimed at children between the ages of five and eight, Machines at Work: Crane, covers a wide range of lifting machine categories. Tower cranes, wheeled mobiles, crawlers, offshore and industrial cranes are all explained in a clear, concise way and illustrated with an interesting selection of photographs.

Some history of cranes, in addition to “fun facts” about lifting devices, are also included. Did you know, for example, that the first non-wooden crane built was made of cast iron in 1834? While it is clearly a book for youngsters, much of the content could be of interest to adults reading along with the kids.
