Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1—Accompanied by his mom and dad, a little boy takes his first airplane trip. After packing and then driving to the airport, the family picks up boarding passes, goes through security, finds their gate, and walks the Jetway. Once aboard the aircraft, the child snuggles into his seat. Following the flight attendant's safety briefing, the plane soars into the sky, "LIFTING! Whooshing! CRUISING! Soaring!/SHUDDERING! Shaking! RUMBLING! Roaring!" When it lands, Grandma greets her grandchild with open arms. The concise plot nicely portrays what children can expect on an airline flight. Inclusion of the security checkpoint updates this picture book from others about first flights. Noticeable details in Speir's acrylic spreads include a small toy airplane on the boy's dresser, an airplane-patterned backpack, and two cuddly teddy bears. A quick read-aloud, this picture book would fit in with aircraft-themed storytimes and is a worthy choice to share with children new to air travel.—Lynn K.

From Booklist

Short, rhyming phrases record the events as a boy takes his first plane ride. Every incident along the way is chronicled here: packing, driving to the airport, getting boarding passes, going through security in stocking feet, waiting at the gate, etc. Though the double-page pictures are simple, the level of detail is well calibrated to the target audience. For example, one of Speir’s acrylic paintings shows the family passing through the security area, an experience that may seem odd or invasive to young passengers. The illustration offers parents an opportunity to discuss details such as the metal-detecting gateway that passengers walk through, the tabletop where the family’s carry-on bags (and teddy bear) await x-raying, and the electronic wand held near the boy’s shirt by a security agent. Colorful and reassuring, this picture book is a good, practical choice for pre-travel reading. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan

My daughter loves this book! We got it from the library before we took a trip, and it details the steps involved with an airplane trip very easily (checking in, security check, waiting at the gate, LOUD take-off...ect). Each page has a simple rhyming sentence or two and adorable pictures. We've read it so many times my daughter "reads" it to herself all the time now. We purchased it so we can pull it out before any future trips to help her remember what's involved with air travel.

We wanted to try to help our almost 2 year old understand what to expect from a plane trip and this book has been great. He loves the pictures and I appreciate that it has pictures of things like taking shoes off at the security gate so that we can try to help prepare him for the trip. We looked at a couple other books but this was definitely the one that 1) interested him the most and 2) had the best information on getting him prepared what to expect.

I bought several airplane books to help prepare my 3 year old daughter for a 12 hour flight coming up. This is her first plane ride and I wanted to help her know what to expect. She LOVES this book, she loves that there is a grandma at the end to greet the child, just as in her case, we are going to visit her grandma in South America. She loves the catchy phrases and nice big pictures, and is starting to memorize it and know it by heart which is so cute. OUt of the pile of about 5 airplane ride books I bought, this is always the one she grabs and says, "read my airplane book." The cost is a little higher than the others but way worth it, since it really strikes a cord with her. I think she would like this book even if I hadn't bought it for the reason to prepare her, I think it is just pleasing to kids with the short, catchy phrases and big, bright colors. Very pleased! The only reason I did not put 5 stars is that I wish I could find a book to address some of the negative things that we might/will encounter like waiting, getting hungry, going potty in public restrooms, not staring at other passengers, not yelling or whining, getting tired, strange noises and cramped spaces....and somehow put a positive spin on it like....but it is all worth it to see Grandma at the end of the long plane ride! Yes, it's fun and cool to ride in an airplane but it's long, annoying, and there are rules to follow as well, a good lesson for kids to learn from.

My 11 month old son wants to read this book over and over. If you hide it on the coffee table, he points to the table until you retrieve it. It has also helped to stave off meltdowns at the airport. I just repeat the words in the book and then he remembers why we are waiting in line and gets excited. Highly recommended!

This book was easy to read and easy to understand the basics of commercial flight travel for my 6 year old son. He thoroughly enjoyed the book. He knew what to expect and what to do for our travel day starting from the time we left our home until the time we landed at our destination.

I bought this book to help prepare a toddler (20 months) for riding in an airplane. She is captivated by this book. The illustrations are just right -- bright enough for her to figure out what's going on and easy to identify all of the objects being shown. There are things to talk about/point out on each page (e.g., the teddy bear is looking out the window too, the boy's socks are different colors). My daughter pulls this book out at least once a day saying "Airplane! Airplane!" and wants me to read her the book. It has been a huge hit.

This book is great for taking a new little one through the steps of a first plane ride! I read it to a pre-K
class and then they pretended to be going on a trip to really experience a plane ride....they loved the book!

It was fun reading but too short. My grandchildren wanted more, they love airplanes. We would enjoy more children stories about them.
