Children's LiteraturePat, the young narrator of this early reader, is off to the airport with his dad. Pat's mother is arriving in on a flight. On their way to the airport, Pat and his father read many signs. They must remember the sign in the parking garage to find their car again. And in the main terminal, they read the screens on the arrival monitors to discover where to meet Pat's mother. They find the right gate and greet Pat's mother. Now they must read the signs for "Baggage Claim." The sparse text has only one to three short sentences per double page spread. The book is laid out in a traditional, easy to read format with text on the left side and the illustration on the right. Unusual or new words are highlighted in a bold font. The photo illustrations show an African American family. The "My World" series from Scholastic Press also includes the titles Signs at School, Signs at the Park, Signs at the Pool, Signs at the Store, and Signs on the Road. 2003, Children's Press/Scholastic, and Ages 2 to 5.
