The Flying Girl : How Aida De Acosta Learned To Soar

by Margarita Engle


In this beautiful picture book filled with soaring words and buoyant illustrations, award-winners Margarita Engle and Sara Palacios tell the inspiring true story of Aida de Acosta, the first woman to fly a motorized aircraft. On a lively street in the lovely city of Paris, a girl named A da glanced up and was dazzled by the sight of an airship. Oh, how she wished she could soar through the sky like that The inventor of the airship, Alberto, invited A da to ride with him, but she didn't want to be a passenger. She wanted to be the pilot. A da was just a teenager, and no woman or girl had ever flown before. She didn't let that stop her, though. All she needed was courage and a chance to try.
