Review:

All these exciting aircraft and spacecraft projects come with simple, easy-to-understand directions and require inexpensive, safe materials. Boys and girls alike will enjoy building such groundbreaking flying machines as a kite (the first craft known to put a man aloft in 500 B. C. ), the Montgolfier hot-air balloon (1793), Otto Lilienthal's hang glider (1896), female aviation pioneer Harriet Quimby's Bleriot (1911), Robert Goddard's rockets (1929), and Chuck Yeager's sound barrier-busting X-1 (1947). By the time they reach the end of this innovative compendium of flight projects, kids (grades 3-6) will be launching their own rockets, absorbed a wealth of science, and may well be interested in applying themselves to their school studies with an intention of becoming a scientist, aviator and/or inventor! Let's Build Airplanes & Rockets! is a superlative activity book that is as much fun and it is informative! -- Midwest Book Review
