PICTURE BOOK: How People Learned to Fly by Fran Hodgkins

This is another Smithsonian Air and Space find and a great addition to our school library's non-fiction section (and a book for my airplane-loving students).

This book quickly covers man's journey to flight in a child-friendly way (pretty adult-friendly, too, for those who might be on airplane overload like I was). It starts with how our stories and myths included the dream of flying, then moves to the things we had to learn about in order to fly (gravity, lift, wind), then on to wing designs and engines. I think this will be a popular book in our library this year.

3.5 out of 5 stars
