Novel Nutritious blog - Jennifer Szoch

"There are always boys who, even at an early age, have an insatiable appetite for war books and there are very few good books written at an elementary level that give the detail, explanation and experience that this one does. . . .No doubt this would be a wonderful addition to any school or personal library for the young World War II reader." - Novel Nutritious blog

Second Bookshelf on the Right blog - Mai

"Having three initial choices is great because there are so many adventures you can try and you can read this book over and over again. Plus, aside from the history lessons at the start and at the end of the book, you learn a lot of stuff, particularly about the different types of planes. . . .READ IT IF: Your child wants to become a pilot. You want to teach your child about World War 2. Your child likes choose-your-own-adventure books." - Second Bookshelf on the Right blog

NetGalley Review - Monique German

"My students, especially the boys, enjoy the You Choose series. I have seven titles now. I guess I'll be adding number eight. I particularly appreciated the point of view from the Tuskegee Airmen. . . .It's on my to-be-ordered list." - NetGalley Review

The Children's War blog - Alex

"I actually enjoyed going back and forth and making choices to see where each path led.  I also liked the photographs that are included and relevant to the path I was following. . . .World War II Pilots is an excellent book for leisure reading as well as home schooling and classroom use." - The Children's War blog

Childish Nonsense blog - Sue Poduska

"The twenty different endings make sure this is a book many will be read again and again. The page design and photographs and maps chosen add to the feel of being there. The very extensive tools make further learning easy and inviting." - Childish Nonsense blog
