Format: Paperback
This children's book is probably the best book that can be given to any child who is hestitant about riding in an airplane.

It features the processes that are involved in airplane travel. It begins with the introduction of the family, suitably named The Tripps, and how to go about getting the tickets, weighing and scanning the luggage and what occurs once inside the plane.

The comical pictures like when the family is smiling as they're listening to music on earphones and when Mr. Tripp tries to grab the luggage at the baggage carousel, sets the tone for how exciting airplane travel can be.

This is one of the best books available for introducing young children to flying -- and it is the only one I've found that includes passport control/customs. It was perfect for both my children when we went to Europe. They knew what to expect at the airport, in the plane, etc. We followed along with the book at each step of the process -- ticketing, security, the plane ride, arrival, baggage claim and customs. Plus, the kids love locating the hidden duck on each page.

I bought this book for my 2.4 year old twins and brought it with us on our overseas flight. It's a light weight book which is good, but it was just too busy for my boys. There was so much on a single page it was too much for them to really enjoy. I wouldn't recommend it for younger toddlers. I would recommend the book "Airplane" instead. Airplane is simple to follow and gives the little ones all the information they need.

I bought this book for my 2 year old before we went on a trip to Brazil to see my husband's family. Now that he was mobile, I was concerned with him navigating through the airport and staying quiet and still on the plane. Reading this book ahead of time helped tremendously in preparing him for what to expect. More importantly, this book was a great opportunity to talk to him about how to behave properly....waiting in lines, wearing your seatbelt, not standing up in your seat, staying with Mommy & Daddy, etc. He looked forward to the metal detector because he saw it in the book, couldn't wait to meet the "officer" who would stamp his passport, and knew that he had to sit in his seat while on the plane like Timmy.

The only thing this book is missing is the actual waiting part...getting to the gate, waiting to board, layovers, etc. were actually the most stressful part that we hadn't discussed. Other than that, I found it extremely helpful. We've been back from our trip for a month now and my son still likes to pull it out to read before bedtime!

I got this book as one of many to help prepare my toddler for airplane travel. I think it's a cute story, but not really helpful for travel preparation for a two year old. A book I much preferred was The Noisy Airplane.

This book has very engaging illustrations and explains all the steps in a long distance trip. My son wants to read it over and over. I feel it really prepared him for his first plane ride. I have to say the one thing I didn't like was the detail about the family leaving the youngest member while they went on a trip. It seemed so unnecessary and a little sad.

Our three year old carried this on the plane. It made our trip planning a little more fun and exciting, he knew what to expect, the illustrations are perfect, the story simple and easy for five and under. This is a must have if you are taking littles on a plane.

Before taking my 4yr old granddaughter on an airplane for the first time, I purchased some books to calm any worries she might have. This book was wonderful! When we got to the airport, she knew all the things we would have to do before boarding. She loved the flight and enjoyed it as though it were an amusement ride.
