BOOK REVIEW by M.C. Simon
United States Air Force Pilot For Kids!
How To Become an Air Force Pilot
When I saw the book title, I suddenly remembered my childhood days when… one of my dreams was to be a pilot. I suppose many kids want to become one, so I was curious to read on and see if I would have this book while being a child. I would now be a pilot instead of an engineer and a writer. Of course, I tried to go back in time and to recreate the desire that I had by putting myself in that child’s skin.
Being written for children, United States Air Force Pilot For Kids has many photos that are not only beautiful but also very inspirational. They are the kind of photos that can give birth to the confidence in you, and no matter how hard something may be to achieve, still you know… You can do it!
I really think that our children need this; to achieve the confidence knowing that the power lies in their hands, and nothing can stop a beautiful dream from becoming a reality.
As the book’s preface says… AIM HIGH!
If you think this book was written in accordance with a fairy tale style, you are mistaken. Even if it is for children, the author preferred the manual and guide structure. I remember being a child; I loved fairy tales because they could bring a very new and beautiful world inside my mind. However, I also remember that I loved guides even more because I knew they opened up the real world to me.
I appreciated this book a lot because it is very inspirational. Behind the main idea of becoming an air force pilot, the book, in fact, gives children many life advices that one day they’ll be able to apply to their careers. It delivers the kind of advices that parents always give, but somehow the child never listen… simply because a child never completely listens to his parents. So, if you want your child to become a good person and step into life with the right foot forward, I recommend you taking into consideration giving him a gift: this book.
While reading United States Air Force Pilot For Kids, I had an “Aha” moment. Yes, that kind of a moment suddenly hit me, “Aha! I got it!” The book is not only a guide! The book is one of the best psychological books for children that I’ve ever read. Not that I’ve read many, but I know for sure how I would act as a child after having this book in my hands.
I especially recommend the book to all the parents. If you want to cancel (even before starting) that awkward period in your child’s life which is controlled by the teenage years, give them this book while you still have time, and you will not have to worry any longer. The book will miraculously embrace their hearts and minds, and they will act in such a way that you will be proud parents even while you’re sleeping.
I have to admit that the part describing the air fights was not exactly what I wanted to read about, but I know that nowadays even cartoons are depicting fighting, so I suppose children will be pleased to read this. The fighting parts are filled with many technical details, and even the parents would probably like to read about them. I only hope that until those who are now kids will finally grow up, the wars on this planet will be totally forgotten, and being an air force pilot will be a peaceful job. At least this is one of my hidden dreams as an adult.
If I would be a child right now and my dream would be to become an air force pilot, this book would be a treasure for the desire in me. But… a child doesn’t have his own money so… If I would be a parent with a child who wished of becoming a pilot, I would buy this book immediately, then run back home with it and start reading it together with my child… who one day… will maybe have a great career that will bring much satisfaction – as a pilot!
