Booklist - 04/01/2019 Taking a plane trip for the first time can be an exciting and a frightening experience for a child. In simple text, this book follows a family (mother, father, daughter) as they board a plane, enjoy a smooth flight, then disembark for their destination. Along the way, vocabulary related to airplanes and flying is introduced. Brightly colored, naturalistic digital illustrations convey a great deal of information about how an airport functions, such as how the baggage is loaded and that ground control directs the air traffic. The people depicted have varying skin tones, and the pilot is a woman with a male copilot. With the focus divided between the technical preparations for the plane and the experience of the traveling family, not much detail is given to either. No security line is depicted, for example, and there is no explanation about how the plane is able to go aloft. Used with a nonfiction book about how airplanes work, this story could be helpful in calming any concerns a child might have about an upcoming trip. - Copyright 2019 Booklist.
