Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susan Borges
Interesting information and specific details about planes and flying are presented on each page of this small paperback nonfiction text. Many numerous nonfiction features and the wonderful photographs and illustrations contained in this comprehensive text aid in the young independent reader's understanding and enjoyment of the subject. There are sidebars and captions, a table of contents, a glossary, an index, and voice bubbles with questions and answers that will expand the reader's thinking about different types of airplanes, various uses for airplanes, and unique tools used by airplane pilots. Many unique features of planes such as the fact that there is no steering wheel on a plane and a jet plane uses a stream of gases to make the plane fly are explained in straightforward text, supportive illustrations, and close-up photographs. Young readers can enjoy this text from cover to cover or use the bold headings, captions, and chapter titles to select the information which interests them the most and helps them gain maximum understanding about planes. Curious children who would like to learn more about other specific subjects will also enjoy the other titles in this wonderful series because they will be able to read these texts independently, and they will be fascinated by all the new information, subject specific vocabulary, and the unique, strange, and unusual facts about specific subjects which interest them.
