Prepare for takeoff! Jerry Pallotta brings us another high-flying alphabet book with a lot of velocity. THE JET ALPHABET BOOK propels young minds into the wild blue yonder to fly with Goblins and Nighthawks while they lock in solid reading skills. Learn that the Flying Falcon, while able to carry 3000 pounds of fuel, can only fly for an hour and a half. The Dream, a Russian jet, is large enough to carry ten school buses! Zillions of other exciting facts about the jet age zoom across the pages of this book.
