Some were of more recent history.

"I like the 'ABC POP!' by Rachel Isadora because I love the frog hopping on the lily pad. I also like all the bright pictures." -- Teajay Watson, Carter G. Woodson Elementary "One of my favorite books is called 'Watership Down' by Richard Adams. I like it that the main character, Fiver the rabbit, senses danger -- most of the other rabbits do not believe him -- but he always turns out to be right! It was very exciting." -- Jocelyn Ray, Lutherville Laboratory " 'The Magic Schoolbus: Inside the Earth' by Joanna Cole is about Mrs. Frizzle's class field trip inside the Earth to collect rocks.

Richard Adams Henson, a pilot who created a commuter airline and used his fortune to enrich Maryland's public colleges, died Wednesday of complications of Parkinson's disease at his Salisbury home. He was 92. Mr. Henson founded Henson Aviation during the Depression-era 1930s in Hagerstown, and it became one of the country's leading commuter airlines, with $35 million a year in business by the time he sold the company to Piedmont Airlines. Born in the Washington County community of Paramount, Mr. Henson was working in a Hagerstown gas station when he got his mother to guarantee a $375 loan for an interest in a Kreider-Reisner Challenger biplane.
