Great book for young children to learn about different types of airplanes, also a great tool for the ones that never experience to flight in an airplane before.

A small and simple book that nonetheless is appealing in its bright, cartoon-like illustrations and the subject matter. Barton has made his place in the children's book world exploring various forms of transportation, from planes to trains, and kids love that topic. This board book is about planes. As with other books by the author, the sentences are simple and work primarily to label and explain the picture. The book begins with examples of several different types of planes - seaplanes, crop dusting planes, planes that write messages- and then settles on the jet plane. With the jet plane, Barton shows a close-up of the functions and maintenance of a plane, such as the passengers that travel on it, or the control tower that regulates it. On the last page we watch the plane disappearing into the sky. This board book is similar to the picture book Barton wrote, Airport, but with simpler illustrations, less text, and a focus on the planes themselves rather than the airport and traveling by plane. I still recommend it as a good introduction to planes for toddlers, and especially useful if you plan on traveling by plane with such a small child, to prepare her for the trip. ( )
