The Hallelujah Flight

The Hallelujah Flight, written by Phil Bildner and illustrated by John Holyfield, is a great story of the first African American to complete a transcontinental flight. The story is quick, engaging, and will appeal to young readers who are learning about aviation and even prejudice.

This is an excellent picture book, and a note from the author at the beginning of the book provides the factual basis for much of the book. A great read that would be a welcome addition to any library, particularly during Black History Month celebrations!
