  • This is Airic,

    the main character of the book.

    Airic is an air bubble.

    He is made of air particles called

    Nitrogen and Oxygen.

  • On a sunny morning,

    while visiting his grandmother in Chicago,

    Airic heard a bird chirp outside.

    He ran to the window

    to see what kind of bird it was.

    It was a Robin.

  • Hi Robin!, said Airic.

    Good Morning, Airic!,

    may I share some breakfast with you,

    said the cheerful bird with

    a big worm between the blades of its beak.

    No, no, thank you!, said Airic.

  • Are you not hungry?, asked the bird.

    Airic smiled and said:

    No, I am just a bubble of air.

    Air does not get hungry.

  • DING DONG, the doorbell rang.

    Airics friends were at the door.

    4

  • Lets go for a bike ride, Airic! they shouted.

    Wait for me!, replied Airic, quickly putting on his shoes.

    5

  • Before riding the bicycle,

    Airic pumped the tires until

    the tires were full of air.

  • After the bicycle ride, Airics friend Freddy

    asked Airic to make a balloon.

    Airic took a deep breath and blew inside the ballon.

    The balloon grew bigger and bigger

    with each breath.

  • Suddenly, BAM!

    The big, red baloon burst.

    Oh no!, exclaimed Airic. Why did it burst?

    The balloon burst because too much air was inside.

    I dont like when it happens!, cried Airic.

    Air pressure is not all bad, Airic.

    It does many good things, his friends explained.

    What kind of things?, asked Airic.

    12

  • When an airplane moves forward,

    the air pressure under the wings

    lifts the airplane up in the air, they said.

    Airic blew another balloon.

    When balloon got big and round

    Airic stopped blowing.

    The balloon had just enough air in it

    and did not burst.

    14

  • Airic then tied a string around the balloon

    and put it on the ground.

    15

  • Soon the wind came running over the lawn.

    The wind picked the balloon up in the air.

    Put the balloon down!, shouted Airic.

    I want to take the balloon home with me!, shouted the wind.

    Oh, no. This balloon is for my friend!, said Airic firmly.

    Okay!, said the wind and released the balloon.

    Airic took another balloon.

    He filled the balloon with Helium.

    Helium is gas that is lighter than air.

    The balloon quickly rose in the air.

    Airic then gave the blue balloon

    to the wind.

    Thank you, Airic, said the wind and

    flew away.
