This book is a great book to teach students about the in's and out's of traveling on an airplane! I believe that this book would be a good extension of a geography lesson or when discussing what the students are doing for summer or spring break if they are traveling anywhere exciting! :)

A family go on vacation in this informative and engaging picture-book, which chronicles their experience traveling via flight. From catching a cab to the airport, through their many experiences once there - standing in various lines, walking by the businesses that look like little indoor "cities" - from their in-flight activities to their eventual arrival at their destination, although this is entitled The Airport Book, it actually depicts the entire process of travelling by air, from beginning to end.

Although not what I would call a thrilling read, The Airport Book does offer a fairly entertaining look at an experience that many children will share: travelling with family through a busy airport. The text, which is narrated by the young boy of the family, is enlivened by speech bubbles which document what various travelers (including members of the boy's family) are saying to one another. The boy's younger sister, for instance, is constantly asking for her toy monkey, packed in one of the checked suitcases. The artwork is humorous and enjoyable - I liked the contrast between the more colorful people and objects and the white backgrounds - and adds quite a bit to the story. I appreciated the fact that the central family depicted here is biracial. All in all, a solid book, one I would recommend to anyone wanting to introduce a younger child - ages three to seven - to the idea of travel via airplane. ( )

Very thorough covering of flight/airport events, PLUS a story with some humor. Where is monkey? ( )

A book, written from a kid's perspective, on what airplane travel is like, including the preparation, the waiting at the airport, and what happens when you reach your destination.
