Sentences start on one page and end anywhere from 1-3 pages later. Each page will minimum 3 words per page. For example, the first page says, "In buses," the next page says, "and in cars" and it just continues on page by page with huge gaps in the middle of your sentence. It's a good book for an emergent reader. I definitely wouldn't bother reading it again, though. The main point of the story is teach kids what the process is like at an airport and a broad overview of what each job does. ( )
