National Geographic Readers have been well received in this competitive beginning reader category and this book follows up on the success of the previous books with the same careful text, brilliant photography, and fun approach that has proven to be a winner. How cool is a supersonic jet that can zip, dip, and zoom through the air? Or a helicopter that hovers as still as a hummingbird? In this 32-page beginning reader, a real-life pilot introduces kids to the greatest planes that ever flew. Enticing photographs and fascinating facts ensure that a child’s natural curiosity is both inspired AND satisfied. Like each book in this successful series, Planes offers a high-excitement topic from a trusted content provider.
