Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Distilling the innovation, science, and enthusiasm of their first book-The World Record Paper Airplane Book-world record holder Ken Blackburn and mechanical engineer Jeff Lammers present The Kids' Paper Airplane Book.

Written and designed for younger paper pilots, it has simpler planes with brighter, bolder graphics; games, activities, and fun aviation facts (the "A=Alpha, B=Bravo" pilots' alphabet, for example); and everything kids need to fold and fly. They will learn how to design their own planes, do stunts, and build a 3-D airport with stuff found around the house, and they'll discover that the largest aircraft ever flown wasn't a plane at all. There are 16 models and 76 full-color planes in all, a full-color poster of an airport, a pilot's license and flight log, and a field guide to common aircraft.

But the irresistible attraction, as in the grown-up version, are the planes themselves: The Count, The Dragon, The Manta Ray, The Slice, The Aerobat, the Saturn Rocket. Plus the chance to be the next world record holder.

Selection of the Doubleday Kids' Club. Suitable for ages 5 and up. 360,000 copies in print.

Synopsis:

Provides information on the principles of aerodynamics, suggestions for designing airplanes, and instructions for folding paper planes and doing stunts and playing games with them.

Synopsis:

The Count, The Slice, The Thunderbolt and Dragon Ring

Calling all pilots: Fly them indoors. Fly them outdoors. Perform loops, dives, and other stunts, or challenge your friends to a race. And get to know your drag and lift. KIDS' PAPER AIRPLANE BOOK has everything you need to fold and fly a squadron of bold, bright, custom-designed paper aircraft.

PLUS: Games, activities, the pilot's alphabet, a full-color, pull-out poster of an airport, field guide to common aircraft, flight log, pilot's license, and more

Synopsis:

Features 76 full-color planes, a color pull-out poster of an airport, a pilot's license and a flight log, and a field guide to common aircraft.
