9780064440530: The Big Balloon Race, Level 3 (I Can Read)

Ariel would love to be in the basket of Lucky Star on the day of the big balloon race against Bernard the Brave. Her mother, Carlotta the Great, is the best lady balloonist in America. But Ariel's parents think she is too young. Little do they know she is asleep in the Odds and Ends box when Carlotta the Great orders "Hands off!" and the balloon race begins.

The thrills of Ariel's first ride in a hydrogen balloon come to life in this story based on a real ballooning family of the late 1800's. Carolyn Croll's pictures capture the pageantry and drama of the race, and will have readers rooting to the end for Ariel and her mother.

From AudioFile:

It's the day of Alice's mother's important balloon race. Alice would like to be an aeronaut, too, but both her parents tell her she must wait until she's older. But maybe, just maybe, this might be the day for Alice to witness a race at close hand. Bonnie Kelley-Young's energetic narration moves at a fast clip, and she's an eager commentator on the event. Kelley-Young adds gusto to the mayor's race-opening remarks, authority to Carlotta's directives during the race, and excitement to Alice's airborne adventure. She's also resourceful as she suggests sound effects for specific words. Gentle music and background sound effects complete this read-along. A.R. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
