From the Publisher
From flying prehistoric creatures through hot-air balloons and the first manned flights to today''s space travel and envisioned future wonders, this lavishly illustrated picture book traces the entire history of flight in a colorful and innovative way that will strongly appeal to young children. The simple yet lyrical story shows how humans longing to fly studied winged animals for clues, persevered with imagination and courage through years of trial and error, finally got themselves into the air, and continue to race ever higher, faster, and farther. An accompanying fact-filled time line running throughout the pages features whimsical spot illustrations that complement the text and provide another layer of information for young flight enthusiasts.
