Description


The step-by-step process of air travel from the perspective of a young girl on a trip with her parents is revealed in this informative picture book.

A young child is on a trip with her parents. With gorgeous, simple artwork and a clear, step-by-step explanation of the process of air travel, this book shows young readers how each worker at an airport and on a plane -- from the boarding agent, ground crew, flight attendants, pilot and copilot, and air traffic controllers -- contributes along the way to bring passengers safely to their destinations. The title has easy-to-read text and simple, graphic illustrations, as well as a sweet surprise ending -- the family brought along their dog, who earns wings for its first flight.

Praise For…


“This picture book gives readers the inside scoop on the people and technology behind a successful flight. Text and illustrations work well together and would be an excellent choice for a storytime or in a one-on-one reading. Another strength of this title is the effort that went into making the text accurate. The title helps build curiosity and vocabulary in a child-friendly way. This is a highly recommended early STEM title for public libraries and schools, and a great way to prepare young children for their first plane ride.” – School Library Journal

“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…as they board a plane, enjoy a smooth flight, then disembark for their destination. Brightly colored, naturalistic digital illustrations convey a great deal of information about how an airport functions…(T)his story could be helpful in calming any concerns a child might have about an upcoming trip.” - Booklist

“From takeoff to landing, a look behind the scenes of a commercial flight. Technical terms such as ‘yoke’ and ‘landing gear’ help youngsters understand the mechanics of a flight…Clement's crisp, clean digital images and bold angle placements resemble another transportation connoisseur, Donald Crews…. an intriguing choice for the more technically minded.” -Kirkus Reviews
