Synopsis: MY PIECE OF THE SKY features rhyming prose with an easy-to-read anapestic tetrameter (like "The Cat in the Hat"), large print in the Century Schoolbook typeface, and full-color dreamlike illustrations. The author recounts his childhood desire to fly an airplane, tells of the learning process he followed to achieve that goal, and describes the dozens of fascinating things he has seen from the air. MY PIECE OF THE SKY shares mountains, rainbows, clouds, UFOs, airports, dogs, cats, birds, bugs, and more - all from the pilot's point of view. The vocabulary and reading level are suitable for most elementary students. In addition, many stanzas include questions designed to stimulate verbal responses when the book is read aloud. This provides a fun and interactive experience for children, as well as for their parents, grandparents, teachers, or other mentors. The book will inspire, educate, and delight young readers (and it may even reveal a few facts that surprise the adults in their lives). It also underscores the structured discipline and study needed for aviation safety and proficiency. The author's hope is that when a young boy or girl dreams of flying (as he did), this book will be there to nurture and encourage those dreams!
