Book Review: Fly, Fly Again
One of the best parts of being a parent is the sharing of my love of reading with my son. I love that he likes books so much already- even at 7 months old! I look forward to showing him all the books I loved as a child that made me a lifelong reader and lover of books, and finding new ones to discover for the first time together!
Fly, Fly Again is by a mother-daughter team Katie Jaffe and Jennifer Lawson and introduces young readers to the concepts of flight – lift, gravity, thrust, and drag, along with pitch, roll, and yaw. Jenny and Jude accompanied by their pets, Kitty and Hawk, work together to build a flying machine. It is a fun story of adventure, teamwork, and perseverance that begins to lay a foundation for aerodynamics in an adorable picture book format.
Gray is all about animals at the moment and was all smiles when he saw the bird that is part of the story with the main character Jenny. It was a cute story line about the different elements involved in flight, but I really loved that it had a little girl trying hard to make something that would work so she could fly.
The illustrations were lovely and vibrant, making it great to show Gray even though he doesn’t understand it all quite yet. I can see this book being something we’ll go back to as he develops more as it had a great rhyme and story that explained in clear terms about flying to make it understandable for a child.
I was provided an advanced copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own
