    This inspiring narrative tells about two young brothers who dream of creating a flying machine after receiving an air glider from their father. They practice fixing printing machines, bicycles, and engines for many years, but were unsuccessful with their flying machine until they became mature adults.

They practice fixing printing machines, bicycles, and engines for many years, but were unsuccessful with their flying machine until they became mature adults. Johnson takes his readers down memory lane through the eyes of the Wright brothers, and intertwines the entire history of their accomplishments along with their gift of patience which they use in order to keep their flying machine dream alive. The illustrations are colorful and fun with an imaginary bird that is added to the story line in the form of their conscience. As a teacher, I plan on using this text to inspire my students to keep trying and preserve in whatever their dreams maybe. I also want the students to know that it is alright if their dreams do not happen right away, and that having patience will help them achieve greatness if they never choose to give up. Johnson does an excellent job of creating the kind of dialogue that can keep any age group engaged while reading this remarkable story of two brothers who decide to have patience while achieving their goal.

    I read this book when I was a kid and remember it fondly, and will have to revisit it with my children.

    Pretty good tale about patience. Definitely geared for a younger audience. Not sure how I feel about these imaginary creatures inserted into these stories. I think the point could have been made differently.
