ea. vol: illus. by author. unpaged. CIP. Crowell. May 1986. PSm $3.50; PLB $7.89. PreS-Gr 1Simple books describing four distinct modes of transportation. In each volume, different types of each vehicle are presented (rowboats, tug boats, fireboats, etc.) as well as some of the usual scenes surrounding each (e.g., workers checking a passenger plane). Brightly colored illustrations outlined in heavy black convey a bold and simple first impression, yet they portray a good number of accurate de tails that preschoolers find so fascinat ing. The people shown are Barton's charming generic representations, dif ferentiated largely by clothing, skin and hair color. The repetitive nature of the minimal text (``here is the ship. . . ; here are the people. . . ; here comes a sailboat''), is choppy and results in some monotony, but such construc tions do make the series valuable for beginning readers. These books are vi sual stand-outs in any toddler, pre school or beginning reader collec tion.Linda Wicher, Lincolnwood Public Library, Ill.

From the Back Cover
Children explore the many ways we use airplanes, from seaplanes to crop dusters to planes that write messages in the sky. This very simple picture book about transportation 'will delight the youngest, and have enough meat for older preschoolers and beginning readers.' -- K.

Planes isn't Elsie's (8 mo) current favorite book, it's somewhere after Dinosaur Dinosaur and My Car, and somewhere ahead of Barnyard Dance and Sheep in a Jeep, but it definitely makes the list!
Like Barton's other books, Planes is a sturdy board book with lovely, bold, vivid, and simple illustrations accompanying very simple text. Elsie's favorite pictures are of the orange jetplane on the blue sky, and of the people getting on and off of the plane. Often she'll let me read it through the first time, then want it again, but turn through quickly herself until she gets to her favorite pages, which she either studies carefully or hits vigorously, depending on her mood. She is certainly interested.
I like all of these books for reading to babies, and recommend the board books, even if they aren't lap-sized prints. They're the same size as my other board books, and that seems big enough for Elsie.
Any word from other readers on whether or not any pages were omitted in the board book version of this book? I'm curious about it.
