Review: As a child Lars loved airplane rides, and as an adult he is determined to share his passion for flying with so that other children can also experience these rides. When the instructor injures himself and can’t take people on airplane rides, Lars has two choices: sit back or make a difference. The message of this book is refreshing and I love Lars’ passion for helping others. This book is sure to teach your young child an important message on doing the right thing and making a difference!
