This picture book uses detailed illustrations and a concise explanatory text to introduce young children to the airport. The book starts with a family driving to the airport, and follows their journey as they wait, check in, their luggage is loaded, they board the plane, and take off. Their story is told only through the pictures, though, as the text is just simple sentences that label the various components of airports and airplanes, such as the control tower or choosing a seat. The airplane is drawn in cross-section at one point, with different parts like the gas tank and the cargo hold identified. The book is straight-forward in its intention to introduce the workings of an airport, and it succeeds in its mission. The story is not thrilling, but the carefully drawn pictures are engrossing, and the book is a great tool to familiarize children with traveling by plane. ( )
