Three-time Coretta Scott King Award-winning author Angela Johnson and New York Times bestselling illustrator Loren Long invite readers to ponder a band of undercelebrated World War II heroes --the Tuskegee Airmen. Wind Flyers reveals how a boy's love of flight takes him on a journey from the dusty dirt roads of Alabama to the war-torn skies of Europe, and into the hearts of those who are only now beginning to understand the part these brave souls played in the history of America.  Visit Angela Johnson’s official website, and Loren Long’s official website as well. In addition to the toolkit, a Parent Tipsheet is also available. Designed for parents and caregivers, and sized to tuck into the book, the tipsheet features simple activities to engage young children in talking, singing, reading, writing, and playing. Click here to download the Wind Flyers tipsheet.   Book description courtesy Simon & Schuster; used with permission.
