July Books part 2
My fascination with hot air balloons completely took off after watching the movie The Aeronauts on my date with Lane recently! I decided to pull out many of the books as we have on flight and flying and then pioneers in transportation and dreaming of traveling in new ways to put out for display in honor of Pioneer Day.
Here is a list of some of the books on display during the second part of this month that have helped us learn more about the gift of flight and other pioneers in (or dreamers about) travel:
- The 21 Balloons by William Pène du Bois
