This nonfiction chapter book about flight is chock-full of bite-size facts, black-and-white photographs, and CGI illustrations to dazzle and engage even the most reluctant reader.

The astonishing science of airplanes, helicopters, and other flying contraptions might seem beyond reach, but Microbites: Flight breaks it all down into manageable chunks of information on need-to-know topics like how planes fly, history's largest airships, early spacecraft, and other feats of flight engineering. Illustrations and photographs accent nearly every page, while highlighted text calls out important takeaways about each chapter topic, revealing new details about what keeps these marvelous machines aloft. For further learning, kids can turn to the book's eight-page reference section, where they'll find a glossary, a historical timeline, and a list of the most awe-inspiring aviators. Whether they're new to flight science or seasoned pros, readers will find plenty of fascinating facts to chew on in Microbites: Flight.

DK's Microbites series takes daunting nonfiction topics and transforms them into easy-to-digest, mini-guides on kids' favorite subjects from history, science, and the natural world. Packed with eye-catching illustrations, detailed photographs, and the latest scientific research on everything from dinosaurs to mummies, the Microbites series encourages a healthy reading appetite in kids ages 8 through 12, and will leave them hungry to learn more.
