Homer the Helicopter Grand Canyon Adventures

 
18

Homer, an emerald-eyed,little ‘copter is “born” in the factory, and given to the wise Elsa to raise. But the mischievous Homer disobeys his mother by zigging and zagging in every direction. Elsa enrolls him in flight school, where instructor Hank teaches Homer the correct way to fly. Homer earns his wings, and becomes a touring helicopter at the Grand Canyon, taking children on rollicking, cliff-hanging rides! Homer’s nemesis, Baldazar, the eagle, viciously attacks the ‘copter. Homer is jealous of Baldazar’s skills, and takes his controls away from Hank, following the eagle into the canyon’s bottom. Homer and Hank suffer a horrifying crash in the raging river! Instructor Jennie ultimately meets the wrecked ‘copter and has him repaired. Under Jennie’s tutelage Homer matures, graduating into An Air Ambulance Chopper. - Danger, pitfalls, excitement and heartfelt love abound throughout this delightful, entertaining and educational chapter book.
A 72 page, 20 color illustrations, chapter book, for ages 5-10. An educational, aviation oriented tale that even teaches how to pilot a helicopter.

Homer the Helicopter is an enjoyable read-aloud book and has been recommended as an aid in helping young children expand their vocabulary and their understanding of the English language. I also would recommend it as an excellent example of descriptive language for young writers.

Classroom teachers will find it a good resource for “lifting sentences” to show examples of entertaining and descriptive writing. Children will enjoy having Homer on their bookshelves, and parents will appreciate its contribution to the child’s language development.
