To READ Is To Fly is a 144 page annotated bibliography of selected classic, award winning and new author story books, novels, subscription magazines, poetry and playscripts for all ages - children, teens, young and old adults - created to foster a love of reading and, through reading, a lifelong interest in science and nature and an understanding of the ways in which they affect our lives and, in turn, how our lives influence and change our world.

      Flights of Fact and Fancy 
      Family reading; 
      Reading stories and novels to encounter science 
      and nature motifs, concepts and ideas.
      Supplemental classroom reading.

The children's stories involve plots and incidental events that are related in some way to a science. The purpose is to subtly introduce science that is invisibly embedded in what we do in our daily lives. Some of the stories are fiction-based-on-fact. Others are fictional stories that present behaviors and ways of questioning and problem solving  typically used by scientists as they work.  A few of the books are stories based directly on science or are biographical memoirs of scientists and their work.

      Books are the plane, and the train, and the road.
      They are the destination, and the journey. They are home. —Anna Quindlen

"So please, oh PLEASE, we beg, we pray, Go throw your TV set away, And in its place you can install, a lovely bookshelf on the wall."—Roald Dahl.
