School Library Journal - 05/01/2017 PreS-K—Little Plane is excited to start flight school, where he's learning how to skywrite. He practices his dives and arcs, but he just cannot get the hang of his loopity-loops. Little Plane tries and tries until he declares, "Writing is too hard." After trying one more time, he carefully flies around the moon and makes a perfect loopity-loop without getting dizzy. This simple story is geared to very early readers and writers. For children who like planes, it could be a favorite. The graphic-style digital images are simply drawn, with a palette that includes the primary colors of the ground and the blues and grays of the sky. VERDICT The lesson to keep trying until you succeed is a good one for fledgling readers and writers, and the crisp, engaging artwork will keep storytime audiences engaged.—Peggy Henderson Murphy, Wyandot Elementary School, Dublin, OH - Copyright 2017 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
