- I got this book for my 4-year-old son who loves helicopters. I read the book myself and think it is a great book. It has a lot of good information about helicopters and has many beautiful color pictures. I think it's a little beyond a 4-year-old's comprehension, so I put it away for a while. I know he will love this book.The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that I thought the book was a little overpriced. When I opened it up I thought it was awefully thin.
- This is a great book for kids that are interested in learning about helicopters and how they work. The book is well written and nicely illustrated which certainly enhances the understanding of the various types of helicopters.The book explains how the pilot flies the helicopter and the various types of work to which the chopper is put including search and rescue, medical evacuations and in the military.This is a fantastic book that is a helpful guide for kids who may wish to have a career as chopper pilots when they grow up.
- My son really enjoys reading this book. Received it on time. The book was brand new .
- This is a very informative book, with great pictures and good descriptions. The only reason that I've given it three stars is that it includes a page on Helicopters at War. It has a very short summary of the use of helicopters in Vietnam, Korea, and the Gulf War. Certainly done very well and with pictures showing soldiers jumping out the helicopters -- some with medical situations and one with guns (albiet from distance).I just didn't want to have to answer the next questions that would come from my 4 year old. Perhaps for an older age when these topics have already been discussed.
