The Airport Book by Lisa Brown


The Airport Book by Lisa Brown

In a book that is as intriguing as it is useful and entertaining, we follow a family on its way through the complexities of a modern day airport. From checking bags and watching them disappear on the mysterious conveyer belt, to security clearance and a seemingly endless wait at the gate to finally being airborne. But wait! There's more! The youngest family member's sock monkey has gone missing. Follow it at the bottom of the page as it makes a journey as memorable as that of the humans above.


Brightly colored people and baggage fill double-page spreads, nudging readers to look closely at faces, stances, attitudes, and activities to spin narratives for the travelers. Strategically placed text, with modest typeface and subtle sizing, makes the story-building straightforward and the busy pictures navigable. Instructional, comforting, and threaded with multiple air-travel story strands, this travelogue delivers at many altitudes. Kirkus Reviews, starred Planes fascinate children, and there is no shortage of books to develop that interest. There s always room for one more, especially one this good. VERDICT A must-buy for most libraries.
