Good short story (with stickers) to prepare 3 year old for plane journey
on 27 January 2014
Planning a trip with an almost three year old, I bought several different books about going to airports or on aeroplanes. This was one of the more helpful books we bought, for us.
This is a story book, with some words replaced by black and white images. You find the coloured sticker that matches, with the word written next to it, to complete the story. There are a few more stickers that give colour to sections of the illustrations, and some "I found the duck" stickers for when the reader has found the duck hidden in each picture. There are not a lot of stickers, if you are looking for a pure sticker book, look at some of the others available.
We found this was a really good story to read with our almost 3 year old, as a preparation for going on a plane journey. It talks through the process from packing, going to the airport, checking in, security, getting on the plane, eating on the plane, landing, passport control, collecting the bags.
For helping to prepare a 3 year old for a plane journey, I would recommend either Mandy Archer's Busy Airport, or this Usborne "Going on a Plane" sticker book.
