Overview

Distilling the innovation, science, and enthusiasm of their first book-The World Record Paper Airplane Book-world record holder Ken Blackburn and mechanical engineer Jeff Lammers present The Kids' Paper Airplane Book.

Written and designed for younger paper pilots, it has simpler planes with brighter, bolder graphics; games, activities, and fun aviation facts (the "A=Alpha, B=Bravo" pilots' alphabet, for example); and everything kids need to fold and fly. They will learn how to design their own planes, do stunts, and build a 3-D airport with stuff found around the house, and they'll discover that the largest aircraft ever flown wasn't a plane at all. There are 16 models and 76 full-color planes in all, a full-color poster of an airport, a pilot's license and flight log, and a field guide to common aircraft.

But the irresistible attraction, as in the grown-up version, are the planes themselves: The Count, The Dragon, The Manta Ray, The Slice, The Aerobat, the Saturn Rocket. Plus the chance to be the next world record holder.

Selection of the Doubleday Kids' Club. Suitable for ages 5 and up. 360,000 copies in print.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
up in the air All the materials and information kids need to make 16 paper airplanes, and make them fly, are included in Kids' Paper Air Plane Book by Ken Blackburn and Jeff Lammers. Illustrated step-by-step instructions show exactly how to take the double-sided, color pages included in the back of the book and turn them into planes that look like a spider, a slice of pizza and a bat, as well as more typical aircraft. The book also includes a field guide to real planes, a log to record flight distances and ideas for activities.
