Taking a hands-on approach to some very interesting subjects, these beautifully illustrated books for children 4 to 8 feature more than 50 pull-tabs, lift-the-flaps, and pop-ups. Each over-sized volume is jam-packed with fun visual details for attentive readers, while captions provide additional information.
Blast off! Here readers can poke into the cockpit of a Boeing 747, explore the innards of a baggage carousel, and help pilots get ready for takeoff. An overview of passenger jets is complemented here by a look at how technicians get them ready to fly and how airports are able to manage so many flights. Military and air show planes are also discussed, and the final pop-up tableau is a timeline from the Wright Brothers through the cutting-edge planes of today.
