Our Favorite Children’s Books of 2012

The year’s best aviation- and space-themed books for young readers

(Random House)


(Random House)

Written and illustrated by Tim Jessell. 
Random House, 2012. 40 pp., $17.99. 
A young boy imagines what it would be like to be a falcon, riding the north wind high above rocky cliffs and crashing waves — even swooping down upon a cityscape, astonishing crowds of usually blasé New Yorkers. Jessell’s beautiful paintings and simple text make this title a winner. Ages 3–6.
