Age: Beginning Reader (K-2nd Grade)
Bright and Early Books, 1982
ISBN: 0394851307 / 26 pages
Marc Brown’s Wings on Things is a wonderful beginning reader. It’s a story in rhyme about all the different creatures and objects with wings, and those that never have wings. The book has a wonderful pace to it. Although it doesn’t have a story, it does go over concepts like sizes, speed, location, and colors. It’s a well-rounded book with lots of elements told in a fun way.
Wings flutter and flap and they make things go. Some go high ans some go low. SOme fly fast and some fly slow. … Wings come in twos, like twins and shoes.
Marc Brown has written a number of children’s books, particularly the Arthur series which is also a hit TV show.
