    Flight is a historical picture book that tells the story of Charles Lindbergh s flight from New York to Paris Charles has dreamed of flying to Paris for years and wants to become the first pilot to fly across the Atlantic Ocean and change the history of aeronautics He and his plane, Spirit of St Louis, had practiced and prepared extensively for the amazing feat they hoped to accomplish He flew for thirty three hours across the land, water, fog, and cities and kept a diary of his thoughts and feelings as he traveled Charles faced many fears as he flew alone for thousands of miles, but it all was worth it as he landed in Paris and established his place in American History A major theme in Flight is to never give up on your dreams Right before he took off, Charles thought about staying on the ground and turning back home However, he knew he had been dreaming of completing this trip his whole life, and had come too far to back down Even as he was flying hours through the darkest of nights, Charles contemplated if he had made the right decision Though his confidence wavered before and during the flight, he never failed to press on and complete his historic journey Flight is a wonderfully illustrated and detailed story of Charles Lindber...

    Flight The Journey of Charles Lindbergh written by Robert Burleigh and illustrated by Mike Wimmer is a biography of Charles Lindbergh and his flight across the ocean, the first solo Atlantic crossing This book won the 1992 Orbis Pictus Award and is intended for the primary age group I would rate this book a four based on the illustrations and the easiness of reading The illustrations in this book are remarkable because they are so life like as well as the watercolors really create the scene for the readers Instead of the usual each page has a different illustration, this had two pages that combined is one whole watercolor illustration which was great to really get all of the details of the flight This book is a fantastic book to use with the children because it can appeal to both boys and girls because of the topic You could use this book to talk about transportations and planes I think that this book can be used with the younger children because the younger children can listen to the words and really get a lot of details from the pictures whereas the older children can read this book independently as well I think that the words itself creates a beautiful picture in the reader s mind because ...
