Book Review and GIVEAWAY: Fly, Fly Again, by Katie Jaffe & Jennifer Lawson {ends 1/18}

Guest review by: Becki Bayley

From the time she was born,
Jenny dreamed of flying.
Even when she crashed,
she never stopped trying.
She took to the air
without caution or fear…
…despite the disaster
of mom’s chandelier.

The cover of this book is its first attraction – the optimistic smiles and the aviator goggles immediately stole my heart.

Official synopsis:
Book Review and GIVEAWAY: Fly, Fly Again, by Katie Jaffe & Jennifer Lawson {ends 1/18}
Fly, Fly Again is a clever and charming story about Jenny, a child who dreams of flying. After years of tinkering in makeshift laboratories and studying the mechanics of flight with her pet Hawk, Jenny builds a plane--only to crash into the yard of her skateboarding neighbor, Jude, and his pet Cheetah. Working with Jude, Jenny successfully learns how to control and fly her plane. This unique story includes lessons about problem solving, teamwork, and determination as well as family-friendly information about the basics of aeronautical engineering like lift, drift, and more!

What an adorable book! The rhymes and fun motion words (lift, drift, tilt) are not only fun to say, but also lead to lessons about the engineering behind Jenny and Jude’s attempts at flight. The illustrations are also bright, detailed, and informative. They contain even more descriptions of what Jenny and Jude will use in their creations and arrows showing how they want the parts to move. Not sure if a flying adventure sounds too intimidating for your young reader? Add in a pet hawk and a pet cheetah for even more appeal!

This is a super fun book for early readers. The fabulous illustrations always make it great for reading aloud with a group. I’d give it 5 out of 5 stars.
