Red Kangaroo sees a plane in the sky and wants to fly just as high! Once she's learned about the four forces needed for flight—weight, lift, thrust, and drag—Red Kangaroo earns her wings!
In this new series, Chris Ferrie answers all the questions Red Kangaroo has about what things are made of and how things work using real-world and practical examples. Young readers will have a firm grasp of scientific and mathematical concepts to help answer many of their "why" questions.
