This colorful new board book uses a simple, yet engaging story about a young girl and a bird to explore the wonders of flight, from a bird’s flapping wings, to a plane’s engines, to a rocket’s launch into orbit.
In age- appropriate language, Spiro explains how each type of flight works -- and how young children can see those principles at work around them every day.
Simple enough to appeal to the littlest listeners, but accurate enough to satisfy an expert, this charming new book is a great way to foster a love of science and a curiosity about the world!

Your child will delight in bright and bold images as simple text explain the basic fundamentals of flight, from birds to planes to rockets!
