The Airplane A B C

by Richard Rosenblum

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 2-3 Crudely drawn pen-and-ink sketches illustrate this alphabetical history of flight. The entries are one-liners and give virtually no information. Take, for example, the entry under C: `` `Wrong Way' Corrigan took off for California and landed in Ireland.'' Or K , for Kitty Hawk: ``This is where the Wright brothers flew their airplane.'' There's no sense of place, time, or the importance of the event in most of the entries, and terms such as barnstormer and Hat-in-the-Ring Squadron are not defined. Airplane ABC just doesn't get off the ground .Trev Jones, ``School Library Journal''
