The Wright Brothers

When I was a kid, my Mom bought me a series of records about famous events in history. One of them was about the Wright Brothers. I still remember most of that song:

The Wright Brothers were right
The Wright Brothers just knew
They wanted to fly way up high in the sky
So they (forgot this line)
And they tried 'til they could.

It was an interesting little story for a kid because it was one of those interactive stories where the kid was "playing" a part in history. Even though I wasn't much of a history buff then, I loved that set and now have what's left of it. My own kids, however, never had much use for them because you couldn't "watch it."

So, today's little bit of history is about the Wright Brothers and their famous first flight.

This Day in History: On December 17, 1903, the Wright Brothers made history by making a series of short flights in their plane (the first flight is pictured above). Where did these historic flights take place?

Denise - I know you posted the original message a while ago, but I remember the history records (with the Wright Brothers story) like you. In fact, I have been trying to look for a copy of those records. Do you remember what the name of those records are? I would love to have that to help in my search.

Hi Sara:

That set was a 12-record set and I actually still have 8 of them. This is the information on the dust jackets:
