04/01/2021Gr 2–4—Filled with history and fun facts about the development of modern gaming systems, these books are sure to rope in some eager readers. Kids will gasp at how far arcade games have come when they find out early arcade games were mechanical, engineering marvels designed to be played without electricity. The first computers weren't powerful enough to run games like Minecraft, but as microprocessors developed and graphics cards advanced, amazing games became the norm. Perhaps the biggest difference in tech lies in Handheld Gaming, where the Nintendo Switch stacks up against Mattel's Auto Race and leaves it in its dust. Each book includes a section about gaming communities, including tournaments and social groups that readers could join. Infographic-style information delivery breaks up the text, making these books very browser friendly. The writing is informative and engaging, sure to get kids to realize how good they have it! VERDICT An exciting series for gaming enthusiasts.
