Review of 'How Do Hang Gliders Work?' by Jennifer Boothroyd




Would you want to swoop through the air like a bird? Riding a hang glider is a fun way to fly. But a hang glider has no motor. How does the pilot take off? How does the hang glider stay in the air? Learn the answers in this book!

**My thoughts**

Spice up your studies of transportation with an uncommon one - the hang glider. It is a form of transportation, though definitely a nontraditional one. This simple reader explains what kind of aircraft the hang glider is, its parts, and how it works. It also touches on safety. Each page has a striking photograph with just a few sentences explaining it. Young readers will be able to independently enjoy it, while nonreaders will appreciate having it read to them. 

At the end, there is a review diagram of the parts of the glider, fun facts, a glossary, and sources for further reading. I enjoyed reading it and learned something new. Kids are going to love learning about a new way to have an adventure. 

I received an eARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.
