About the Book

This Level Four I Can Read book is a perfect bridge to chapter books for elementary-grade kids—and it introduces the thrilling story of the Wright Brothers, flight pioneers. 

When Tom Tate hears that Wilbur and Orville Wright are building a flying machine, he can't wait to try it. Tom's dad thinks it's dangerous. Some people think the Wrights are crazy. Can Tom help the brothers get their dream off the ground?

"Children will identify with the spirit of this boy who enthusiastically volunteered to try out the glider when there wasn't enough wind to lift the grown men," commented School Library Journal, which also praised the "carefully researched" illustrations.

First Flight helps build reading confidence and pleasure while engaging young readers with compelling historical fiction.
