Description


Sometimes history is made by a dyslexic, mischievous boy who hates school, is a descendant of one of Frederick Douglass' half-sisters, and whose Pops was a Buffalo Soldier.

In I Wanted to be a Pilot, one of the less than 100 living Documented Original Tuskegee Airmen, Franklin J. Macon, tells the lively stories of how he overcame life's obstacles to become a Tuskegee Airman. Soar through history with Franklin as he conquers dyslexia, finds mischief, and grows up to change the course of America. Readers laugh at Frank's childhood antics, while being reminded that disabilities like Frank's dyslexia, repeating a grade in school, and other hardships can be overcome. I Wanted to be a Pilot encourages kids to recognize history, reach for their dreams, and even make their own toys as they are reminded of the great strength and determination of the men and women who came before them.
