About the Book

Overview

The step-by-step process of air travel from the perspective of a young girl on a trip with her parents is revealed in this informative picture book. A young child is on a trip with her parents. With gorgeous, simple artwork and a clear, step-by-step explanation of the process of air travel, this book shows young readers how each worker at an airport and on a plane -- from the boarding agent, ground crew, flight attendants, pilot and copilot, and air traffic controllers -- contributes along the way to bring passengers safely to their destinations. The title has easy-to-read text and simple, graphic illustrations, as well as a sweet surprise ending -- the family brought along their dog, who earns wings for its first flight.

Reviews

“From takeoff to landing, a look behind the scenes of a commercial flight. Technical terms such as ‘yoke’ and ‘landing gear’ help youngsters understand the mechanics of a flight…Clement's crisp, clean digital images and bold angle placements resemble another transportation connoisseur, Donald Crews…. an intriguing choice for the more technically minded.” -Kirkus Reviews
