Ruth Spiro's debut picture book, LESTER FIZZ, BUBBLE-GUM ARTIST, was a Bank Street College of Education Best Book of the Year. She lives in Chicago, Illinois. From the eBook edition.
This colorful new board book uses a simple yet engaging story about
a young girl and a bird to explore the wonders of flight, from a
bird's flapping wings, to a plane's engines, to a rocket's launch
into orbit. In age-appropriate language, Spiro explains how each
type of flight works -- and how young children can see those
principles at work around them every day. Simple enough to appeal
to the littlest listeners, but accurate enough to satisfy an
expert, this charming new book is a great way to foster a love of
science and a curiosity about the world! Illustrator Irene Chan's
bright and stimulating pictures are a perfect complement to this
fun story, provide lots of visual interest for pre-readers. It's a
unique way to get kids thinking about the "whys" all around them
from an early age -- and, as an added bonus for parents, it's a far
more interesting read than the average baby board book. Highly
recommended for age 0 to 3.
