Publisher Description:

A hilarious nonfiction look at two of history's most epic "failures": the Wright brothers, whose countless crashes ultimately led to groundbreaking success.

Although Orville and Wilbur Wright are celebrated today as heroes for their revolutionary contributions to science and engineering—they are acknowledged as the first men to successfully achieve powered, piloted flight—their success was hard-earned. (Spoiler alert: there were a lot of nosedives involved.) In fact, it took the self-taught engineer’s years of work and dozens of crashes before they managed a single twelve-second flight!

In this first installment of the brand-new Epic Fails series, Ben Thompson and Erik Slader take readers through the Wright brothers' many mishaps and misadventures as they paved the way for modern aviation.

The Epic Fails series takes a humorous and unexpected view of history, exploring the surprising stories behind a variety of groundbreaking discoveries, voyages, experiments, and innovations, illustrating how many of mankind's biggest successes are in fact the result of some pretty epic failures.

It will complete my set- I have all the other elements of this programme except this text. I've been looking for it on and off for a while. This curriculum is superior to what is available in Australia.

I liked Singapore Math for Grades 1-6 and decided to just stick with the program. I am very glad that I did and I love that my son can stick with the same teaching approach that he had all along. It is just like a continuation of what he has done in all the years past. Each year goes a little bit deeper into the topics.
