Summary: A historical look into the life of the Wright brothers and how the first airplane was made and flown.

Genre: Biography

Critique: This is a great example of a biography because it is a story written about the Wright brothers, but written by someone else, so it is not an autobiography.

Point of View: Written in third person. Uses "he" "she" and "them" to describe the characters in the book.

Media: Photography

Growing up in rural Ohio, Orville and Wilbur Wright were fascinated by all kinds of vehicles -- a toy helicopter, bicycles, and the first motorized cars -- but what they dreamed of was flight. They were convinced they could build a machine that a man could pilot-and they did. Read about their amazing story of trial, error, and success.
