Let's fly a plane! : launching into the science of flight with aerospace engineering / Chris Ferrie.

Ferrie, Chris, (author,, illustrator.).

In this new series, Chris Ferrie answers all the questions Red Kangaroo has about what things are made of and how things work using real-world and practical examples. Young readers will have a firm grasp of scientific and mathematical concepts to help answer many of their "why" questions." -- Provided by publisher.
