STAFF PICK OF THE MONTH
by David Macaulay
Jet planes are huge and heavy, especially when they are full of people and luggage. So how do they ever get off of the ground? Jet Plane explains all of the sights and sounds you would experience as you ride on a jet plane, as well as the science and technology that allow a jet plane to overcome gravity, avoid other airplanes and bad weather, and travel at speeds of 500 miles per hour—and faster! Written for kids who are still learning to read on their own, this book is a great choice for travelers and all curious kids.
