The Automobile Makers
Sobel and Sarnoff
As you know Holly and I are in Michigan and we both are married to engineers. You can’t swing a dead cat without running into someone that works for the one of the automakers or any of the support industries. Generally, when talking about the auto industry I would add almost anything I could get my hands on for the collection. It is popular with my public and it certainly is a major player in Michigan’s economy. I also know that almost every 3rd or 4th grader has to study Michigan as part of the social studies curriculum so youth nonfiction has got to have titles about the auto industry. However, aside from historical curiosity, this book doesn’t have much to offer your average kid doing homework. Very few pictures in the book which was really a shame. It could have been an even better book. The only good pictures are on the cover. A much more current volume is needed.
One of my favorite auto related books I have kept for myself on my personal shelf of honor. Click here to see Motor City Special.
