I read Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel written and illustrated by Virginia Lee Burton. This was about MIke who was very proud of his steam shovel named Mary Anne, who was very powerful. Mary Anne was old and very helpful, adn helped build many of our countrie's infrastructures. Then some better shovels came along and took away all of Mike and Mary Anne's jobs. Mary Anne and Mike took a job in Popperville. They worked faster when people watched, so the whole town came and watched. They worked so fast and got stuck in the hole. Mary ANne became the furnace for teh town hall, and Mike the janitor and all is well that ends well. The illustrations were very colorful and realistic. The reader could really see Mike and Mary Anne in their mind, when they were reading the book. This is a good book for second grade, in which students could use to learn about the different types of engines.
