In this, the second in the Claire Bear series, the pink-clad acrobatic pilot (Urus Aviatrix) remembers her first solo—a day she'll never forget. When her mother, who is also her flight instructor, determined she was ready, Claire felt both excited and just a bit scared. Summoning all her knowledge and skill, Claire successfully mastered her first solo takeoff and landing as her family and friends cheered her on.
This colorful, soft cover, 40-page picture book relates Claire's memorable milestone using aviation lingo such as "traffic", "tower", "hold line", and "throttle". It introduces readers to the thrills and challenges of a first solo, a flight that every pilot remembers, in lyrical, rhyming stanzas that ages 3 to 8 will adore.
