Reviews - What do customers think about Wilbur and Orville Wright: Young Fliers (Childhood of Famous Americans Series.)?
a little disappointing Apr 2, 2008
Although this book appears to be biographical fiction for kids, the fiction outweighs the history so heavily that I see very little value in it as a history teaching tool. As a story, the plot is moral and enjoyable enough (if a bit trite) and seemed appropriate for a 2nd or 3rd grader just getting into longer chapter books. If you are hoping to learn a lot about the real Wright brothers, though, look elsewhere.
The history of these young boys; young flies: Feb 21, 2006
This is a book back in history. The biography of two males come to me for the coolest time for kids! So, if you are a young child, you may like to read a biography two males. Gruateened you will love it!!
Fun and loaded with facts! Feb 23, 2005
This book is really good. I like the way the author provides information about Orville and Wilbur individually, instead of just lumping them together as "the Wright brothers." I also liked reading about their childhood, how they got interested in flying, and how they developed their airplane.
