Airborne: The Search for the Secret of Flight , Maurer, Richard
1 Airborne: The Search for the Secret of Flight  Maurer, Richard
0671694227 / 9780671694227 New.  
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover 1990. Glossy picture cover--no dustjacket. Superclean; no marks; never read. Gift-giving condition. 48pp, Index, many color photos and diagrams. Language: English. From School Library Journal: 'Grades 5-8--A concise and attractive volume, this book details the search for the secret of flight. It begins with experiments and designs for airships, hot air balloons, and gliders from the 1600s; and briefly traces each discovery and development that led to the Wright Brothers' flight in 1903. The text is well written and detailed enough for junior high students, yet the layout is inviting enough for younger children. Each page includes drawings, photos, or reproductions; all are clear and have captions. Also, the diagrams do a good job of illustrating the principles involved. 4 experiments are included (such as making a hot-air balloon out of tissue paper and a blow dryer), all of which are well illustrated and explained within the capabilities of the intended age group.'--JoAnn Rees.
