About this title


Can you imagine having to drive long distances in a car, train, or bus? Airplane travel changed all that, making travel much quicker, easier, and less stressful. This book addresses the four factors that make it possible for an airplane to fly: weight, lift, thrust, and drag, and details what each of these things means to maintain the safety of the passengers who fly on the over 64 million flights a year in the United States. So, buckle up and enjoy your flight in this wonderful book about airplanes! This book will allow students to ask questions, make observations, and gather information about a situation people want to change to define a simple problem that can be solved through the development of a new or improved object or tool.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 1-3-Intended for a young school-age audience, these books do not shy away from tackling complex concepts in an easy-to-understand way. Even the youngest readers can learn the basics of aerodynamics (Airplanes) and drive gears (Escalators) without feeling overwhelmed. Uncluttered and streamlined, the clean design makes the vibrant images pop without drawing focus away from the content. Questions within the text actively engage readers to think about the science-based ideas critically, and the noteworthy "Photo Glossary" provides the audience with a visual frame of reference by connecting an image from the text to the word it's defining. A "Before and After Reading Activities" section at the beginning of each volume should prove helpful to educators as they integrate STEM titles into the curriculum.
