About the Book
JOIN THE ADVENTURES OF POP-POP AIRPLANE!
Do you ever see a plane fly by in the sky and wonder, “How does it work?” Well, Pop-Pop Airplane is here to help every young and curious mind understand how airplanes take flight and take them on unparalleled adventures.
Pop-Pop Airplane, How Do You Fly? successfully introduces concepts of engineering to youthful readers, giving them an easy-to-follow, age-appropriate lesson in how lift is created in aeronautics. Through the first book in The Adventures of Pop-Pop Airplane series, children will rhyme and read about the wings, the engine, and even little-known parts of the plane – like the ailerons or the elevators. With Pop-Pop’s guidance, readers will be better prepared to fly the friendly skies with confidence, and they will feel the spark of imagination every time they watch a plane sailing overhead, or hop on board for a family trip.
"By showing readers the magic and simple mechanics of flight, author Dan Pegram encourages curiosity in the world around them, preparing kids to become lifelong learners – and confident travelers. Pop-Pop Airplane, How Do You Fly? imparts empowering principles through the joy of aviation, and I’m thrilled to see a member of the Southwest family carrying on our commitment to educating future leaders."

"Pop-Pop Airplane, How Do You Fly? is a great introduction to basic aerodynamics for young readers. Capt. Pegram’s easy-to-understand treatment of the technology of flight fills a long-standing void in children’s literature and is sure to inspire young minds to learn more about the science of aviation."
