Image: Helicopters Stickers (Dover Little Activity Books Stickers), by Steven James Petruccio. Publisher: Dover Publications (May 14, 2002)First Helicopter's Flight (1922)
-- In 1922, Henry Berliner mounted two coaxial counter-rotating rotors on the wing tips of a Nieuport biplane fuselage. Sets of movable vanes—flat surfaces mounted under the rotors—provided some control. The craft reportedly could maneuver in all directions and obtained a speed of about 40 miles per hour (64 kilometers per hour). In June 1922, it hovered around 12 feet (3.3 meters) off the ground and was successfully demonstrated to the U.S. Army in 1924. The Berliner aircraft are considered the first rudimentary piloted helicopters developed in the United States.
Read: Helicopters Stickers (Dover Little Activity Books Stickers), by Steven James Petruccio
-- Powered by one or more rotors, the helicopter is able to take off and land vertically, move in any direction, or remain stationary in the air. This book contains 12 accurately rendered sticker illustrations of this versatile aircraft, including the Blackhawk, Bell Cobra, Mariner, Boeing CH-47D Chinook, and 8 other models.

Image: RollerCoaster, by Kevin O'Malley. Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers; 1st edition (May 1995)First Roller Coaster Opened (1884)
-- On this day in 1884, the first roller coaster in America opens at Coney Island, in Brooklyn, New York. Known as a switchback railway, it was the brainchild of LaMarcus Thompson, traveled approximately six miles per hour and cost a nickel to ride. The new entertainment was an instant success and by the turn of the century there were hundreds of roller coasters around the country. Source
Read: RollerCoaster, by Kevin O'Malley
-- On a summery day, the heroine of this lackluster picture book visits Fantasy Park, where she and her family play putt-putt golf and pose for silly photos. They all wear T-shirts touting the "Monster Coaster," but when they arrive at the main attraction, the girl is pronounced too small to ride. With this moment, the book's tone shifts-the expressive, variable-size typeface, heretofore swooping across spreads in gleeful mimickery of the roller coaster, scrolls dispiritedly along the bottom of the page. But all is not lost. The narrator's winter growth spurt is depicted via before-and-after illustrations, scribbled in a childlike hand. By the following spread, a year has passed, and the much taller girl demands her rightful seat in the coaster's front car.
