Full Speed Ahead Full Speed Ahead: How Fast Things Go
by Cruschiform

E CRU

Did you know that a tornado travels faster than a race car? Or that a human and spider travel at the same speed? Full Speed Ahead! is the first picture book to directly compare the speeds of animals, modes of transport, and forces of nature in a clear and visually striking album format. Objects are grouped from slowest to fastest, with objects of the same speed on one spread, creating fascinating “match” races. And with a sleek, graphic design and vibrant spot-color printing, Full Speed Ahead! is as gorgeous to look at as it is informative to read. On your mark, get set, go!

All or nothing can’t bring you all to home, which is exactly where Addie longs to be, with her half sisters, every day. In spite of life’s twists and turns, Addie remains optimistic. Someday, maybe, she’ll find normal.
