Starting with natural flyers such as birds and squirrels, and then progressing through the history of man’s quest to take to the air, this book looks at all of the aspects of flight including different types of flying machines, important inventions, the forces on a plane, and the challenges of getting into space. At this reading level, the concept of primary and secondary text is introduced with a main body, image captions, and callout boxes for short features. A deeper glossary and index complete the book, making this a fun choice for emerging readers who dream of flying themselves. LEVEL 4: READING ALONE A greater variety of language and types of information than at level 3. More challenging vocabulary is introduced. Sentences remain clear, interesting, and unambiguous, but are slightly more complex.

Age: 12 months to 5 years Features Silicon seat cover Made in New Zealand Helps development, learning and funABOUT WISHBONE DESIGN STUDIO The story of Wishbone Design Studio began in 2005 when Noah was one and Lulu was born.We were four bewildered Kiwis, living in New York City. Rich is from a small town in rural New Zealand. Not exactly a city boy. He practically lived in Central Park for two years - on a quest for space and sky. The first Wishbone Bike was born out of wanting to give the kids a taste of the childhood we had. You see, when we were little, the grass was long, the air was fresh and the folks weren't always watching. We ran where we liked, rode until dark and collapsed smiling at the end of a crazy day. Rich designed and built the first Wishbone Bike prototypes in our NY bathroom. Since then, he's moved on a bit. From the bathroom in New York, to a garage in Wellington, to the studio - which is actually just a groovy old shed squeezed between a bookbinder, a carpet seller and a windmill-maker two doors down. These days folk are buying our bike on both sides of the Atlantic, the Pacific - and the Equator! That makes us pretty happy. Happy Riding, Rich and Jen, Wellington, New Zealand
