Stow, OH, May 24, 2023 --(PR.com)-- James Titmas, a gifted author and engineer who holds a BCSE degree from the University of Akron in Ohio as well as a coveted Distinguished Alumni Award, has completed his new book “The Sliddery Rails”: a charming and educational story about how transportation has evolved.

“The children learn about the history of roads and railroads,” says Titmas. “They learn about engines and traction. They learn about moving people and things around with less work and cost. They run tests of their own to see how traction and friction work. They learn about improvising and going with what they have.”

Published by Page Publishing, James Titmas’s adjective tale follows Bess, Jimmy, and Jamie as they go on a hike with their Opa. They walk along an old railroad track and stop to take a rest. As they stare at the tracks, the children become curious as to why and how railroads came to be. Opa explains that originally, loads of goods and people were pulled by horses, but the horses got tired and needed breaks. With the invention of the railroad, transportation was expedited because trains do not get tired like horses.

The kids are still puzzled as to why a train does not slide over the steel railroad tracks. Opa explains that it's a combination of traction and friction: traction is getting going and friction is stopping. It begins to rain, and Opa proposes that they all go back and do some tests in the workshop. Bess, Jimmy, and Jamie excitedly gather household objects to try to simulate how steel can stick to steel. Will they be able to grasp these big concepts using items found at their home?

Readers who wish to experience this delightful work can purchase “The Sliddery Rails” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble. The website for the books in this series is www.JBJBooks.com.
