5.0 out of 5 stars My plane obsessed 4 year old loves it 12 Jan 2013
By Nicola C. Kinsella - Published on Amazon.com
We've borrowed several books on the Wright brothers from the library and this is the one my four year old son asks for over and over again. It contains many historical details, but the writing is simple enough for him to understand. The illustrations are a combination of historical photographs and some vaguely humorous cartoon style illustrations. A note to parents of younger children, many pages are half filled with text, but it's in a nice, easy to read larger font. Half a page is (very roughly) about 80 words. My son loves books in general and has the patience for a longer story, so he's happy to sit quietly, devouring every word. And I will confess that as a Mom, I am also partial to this version because pays tribute to the role that their Mom's handy/crafty nature (she often made furniture, toys, and clothes) had in their cultivating their inventiveness. If your child is plane obsessed like mine I think they'll enjoy this book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great for elementary school 4 April 2014
By Shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The books in this series are all great! If you try to research many of the inventors and scientists in the series based on articles on the internet, you'll find that they are frequently written on a level well above what an elementary school student can understand. This is particularly true of Luis Alvarez. These books are well-written, include fun illustrations, pictures, and cartoons, and are easy to understand for children. I would say they are on a 3rd-5th grade level, and they are about the right length to cover the basics without becoming tiresome for kids. Well done!
3.0 out of 5 stars Great for older kids 15 Oct 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I got this for my 1st grader, we were studying Wright Bros, he found this story boring, so we moved on to other stories and I will keep this for when he gets a little older.
