But the best remains Russell Freedman’s The Wright Brothers: How They Invented the Airplane, a Newbery Honor book published two decades ago. Few in the history of children’s books have ever surpassed Freedman in his ability to write intelligently and gracefully about a variety of figures-Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, or Marian Anderson. Freedman begins his story with the chapter, What Amos Root Saw. Standing in a cow pasture near Dayton, Amos, a beekeeper by trade, watched the Wright brothers fly an airplane for a minute and a half. Freedman has lavishly illustrated this book with their own visual record. Hence it allows young readers to go back to the early 1900s, to watch and dream and spend time with Wilber and Orville.

A Newbery Honor-winning biography of the men whose experiments brought about the Age of Flight.  This engaging narrative account of Orville and Wilbur Wright, two men with little formal schooling but a knack for solving problems, follows their interest from a young age in the developing field of aeronautics.  Russell Freedman’s writing brings the brothers’ personalities to life, enhancing the record of events with excerpts from the brothers’ writing and correspondence, and accounts of those who knew them.Chronicling their lives from their early mechanical work on toys and bicycles through the development of several flyers, The Wright Brothers follows the siblings through their achievements—not only the first powered, sustained, controlled airplane flight, but the numerous improvements and enhancements that followed, their revolutionary airplane business, and the long legacy of that first brief flight. Illustrated with numerous historical photographs—many taken by the Wright brothers themselves—this is a concise, extremely reader-friendly introduction to these important American inventors. Includes a note on the Wright brothers’ photographs, as well as recommendation for further reading and learning.

I was surprised how interesting this book turned out to be. I am from North Carolina and thought I knew a lot about the Wright Brothers. I have been to the Kitty Hawk Museum and have seen first hand the site of their first flights. When I started the book, I learned about their interesting family history and how the brothers had always seemed like twins even though Wilbur was four years older. The book describes their growing up year and details their growing interest in flight and how they came to build the first airplane after several years of prototype. I was surprised that they rewrote all prior information because it had all be calculated incorrectly. This book personalizes Wilbur and Orville Wright and describes the close family relationship they had with their father and sister. It also tells the history after their first successful flight and how they continued to experiment and develop new and better airplanes. There are great pictures and diagrams from the original pictures taken by the Wright brothers and their journals. This was an excellent read. It was written in a way that even I could understand much of early aeronautics.

Learning about airplanes and the way they were built was so cool! In this book I enjoyed reading about the relationship between the two brothers as well. The way they built these was incredible. I know you have to be really smart to build an airplane like they did. This book was inspiring and I definitely recommend it!

We love it.

I did buy this for our son, but it has more pictures than any other Wright brothers book so I have been enjoying it as well. It doesn't end in 1903 with their first flyer like a lot of other books do. Excellent!
Lovely book for home. Difficult to use in a classroom.
