Nathan Clement has a knack for books about transportation. In his latest, a young girl and her family travel by airplane. The illustrations capture each stage of the journey from baggage being loaded to the landing gear being lowered for the arrival at their destination. Some pictures show the family, other show the crew and airport staff, and still others focus on the parts of the plane itself.
With large spreads and limited text on each page, this is perfect for early elementary readers who can't get enough books about things that go. It would be a great gift for a child about to take her (or his), first plane ride. Classroom teachers doing a unit on transportation or planning a field trip to the airport could share it with the class and then make it available to read again later.
I read a copy provided by the publisher for review purposes.
