A pocket-sized pop-up books designed to capture a young reader's imagination, The Story of Flight is one in a series of ""Panorama Pops"" non-fiction published by the always-innovative Candlewick Press.
Museum exhibit-style 2-page panels with pop-up features explain the history of flight through time. The text is interesting and easy to follow for young readers, and clear enough to read aloud. The pop-up balloons, airplanes, and zeppelins are cute and fun, and definitely durable enough to withstand many readings.
Highly recommended for young readers and scientists, as a school book fair feature, and as a gift for older readers who would enjoy a novelty book.
