Simon, Seymour. Amazing Aircraft (published in 2002 by North-South Books, Inc., 11 E. 26th St., 17th Floor, New York City, NY 10010; republished by Scholastic Inc., 557 Broadway, New York City, NY 10012). Seymour Simon has written more than 200 science books for children, many of which have been named Outstanding Science Trade Books for Children by the National Science Teachers Association. This is one of the “See More Readers” for young children, of which we have had several, and it provides an easy-to-read overview of the history of aircraft. Unfortunately, many of Simon’s books on animals have evolutionary statements about things that supposedly happened millions of years ago, but his books on technology usually do not have any evolutionary statements and are quite informative.
