3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By K. Rains on 13 May 2004
Format: Hardcover
A good book, aimed at around 18 months old and is ideal for a first time flyer who you want to explain about planes and airports too, or a child who is plane or even transport addicted!! Nice clear pictures with two lines of text per page done in a rhyme. It clearly explains how a plane flies, which is better for an older child, mine just likes the pictures and the fact its in rhyme more than the actual facts I think!
