Cromwell Dixon's Sky-Cycle By: John Abbot Nez
This is the story of Cromwell Dixon's life. Dixon was an inventor from the time he was young, he loved building and creating new things. He read about all the different things that were being invented, but he went flying in 1904 in a hot air balloon, he then knew he wanted to fly. He invented a sky-cycle, and on August 9, 1907 he took it to the air for the first time.
This is a terrific non fiction picture book for kids. It would go great with any unit on inventions. It has great illustrations and the facts in it tell Dixon's story well. I loved reading it to my kids, because they thought it was amazing that someone would invent a bike for the sky! Great read
I borrowed this from the public library
