Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
What planes look like, how big some of them are, what an airport is like and how planes fly are some of the topics covered in this nonfiction reader that is part of the "Usborne Beginners" series. It is quite up-to-date, noting the check-in process, security checks and use of the autopilot. Most readers will be happy to know that either the pilot or copilot must be in the cockpit. The role of air traffic controllers, the reason planes fly above the clouds (less bumpy) and avoidance of storms as well as the landing process are among the issues the author describes. While nothing is covered in depth, there is a surprising amount of information, all liberally illustrated. The book has a table of contents, glossary, index and refers the reader to Usborne's Quick Links Web site. The back cover lists some Internet safety rules and also has a note for adults. This book would also be a good choice for kids not reading on grade level or those in ESOL programs. 2003, Usborne, Ages 5 up.
