Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It's time to fly! Lyrical, accessible text and pleasant, focused illustrations from various perspectives introduce the very young to the world of flight in this descriptive selection reminiscent of the work of Byron Barton and Donald Crews... A nice choice for those who love planes or who are about to fly for the first time. " - Kirkus

"This is a great book to introduce kids to air travel. Bill Cotter includes vibrant colors to accompany his simple text. This book is a great choice for young children who are non-readers and those emergent readers. It contains a repetitive storyline that makes the content easy to follow, while also encouraging safe and happy feelings about plane travel. Recommended" - Library Media Connection

It's time to fly! Lyrical, accessible text ("The airplane says good-bye to the ground. / The airplane says hello to the sky") and pleasant, focused illustrations from various perspectives introduce the very young to the world of flight in this descriptive selection reminiscent of the work of Byron Barton and Donald Crews. From takeoff to landing, this brief tale offers a straightforward, accurate and child-friendly account of some of the aspects of an aircraft journey (who is in the plane, where it flies, who and what it passes over and through, when it flies, etc.) as well as what the pilot might see from the cockpit—a particularly arresting image. While there is nothing startlingly new here, and a board-book format might be preferable given the intended audience, toddlers and young listeners will still enjoy the various images of the plane and its surroundings as the aircraft makes its way to a satisfying destination. Adults hoping to introduce first-time passengers to the experience should note that there is no discussion of what a child should expect in the airport. A nice choice for those who love planes or who are about to fly for the first time. (Picture book. 2-5)

    This book would be a perfect companion to a small child on her first airplane flight or even before, to prepare her for that exciting ride of her life high up in the sky.  This book documents an airplane's journey from the time of liftoff to the time of touch down.  It exhibits wonderful vocabulary words such as hello (airplane), over (trees, mountains and people), through (clouds) and above (birds) just to name a few.  The book has a very happy and uplifting vibe and the illustrations are colourful, big and engaging, just a perfect match for the sparse text. Both are so kid- friendly and appealing to that specific age group.   I highly recommend this book.
