In this beautiful picture book filled with soaring words and buoyant illustrations, Margarita Engle and Sara Palacios tell the inspiring true story of Aída de Acosta: the first woman to fly a motorized aircraft.

On a lively street in the lovely city of Paris, a girl named Aída glanced up and was dazzled by the sight of an airship. Oh, how she wished she could soar through the sky like that! The inventor of the airship, Alberto, invited Aída to ride with him, but she didn’t want to be a passenger. She wanted to be the pilot.

Aída was just a teenager, and no woman or girl had ever flown before. She didn’t let that stop her, though. All she needed was courage and a chance to try. The Flying Girl: How Aida de Acosta Learned to Soar is 40 pages long and is perfect for children ages 4-8.
