Aviation-Themed Books

Library day! 

Each week, we want to share some suggestions for your reading list based on the topic of the week.  We try to select books for every age level.

Since this week’s topic is Aviation, these book selections have aviation, pilots, or air travel as part of their theme.

Field Trips - The Zoo

They were brothers, twins, born the same month and year that our son, Peter, was born. Our Peter was born in a hospital in Texas. The twins were born in a Zoo in Pittsburg, PA.  They were Kodiak bears.

The twins came to the Indianapolis Zoo in 1988, just after we relocated to Indy, ourselves. So what would you do if you found out that a Zoo animal was your age or your kid’s age? I know what we did. We bonded with those bears.  After that, the highlight of every Zoo trip was visiting the enclosure for Peter’s birthday buds.

Zoos. We love them. Where else can you receive top notch, outside-the-box education disguised as fun? And this is the best time of year to visit a Zoo. In cooler weather the animals are perkier. The crowds are fewer. But you can still find great stories that will stick with you forever and give you a new appreciation for the creatures that share our world.
