A precursor to DK's award-winning Eyewitness series, Eye Wonder was specially developed for children aged five plus, featuring astonishing photography exhibiting subjects within their natural setting, offering a whole new level of information through powerful images. Each title in the series now contains educational activities including true and false questions, quizzes, matching games, and mazes. Vocabulary is accessible to young readers, with the meanings of new, subject-related words clearly explained. The combination of visuals and informative, accurate text will hook even those children who usually avoid books.
An introductory look at the fascinating world of flying from the first flight, early gliders, monoplanes and biplanes, to the high-powered jetliners, jet planes and helicopters that travel the world today. Eye Wonder: Airplanes explains how flying works and how it's changed our world.
