We were hoping to find a book for our 2-year old son - a big fan of planes - with descriptions of different types of planes and great pictures. While this book does have good pictures, the text was far simpler than we expected from the description given. Each set of facing pages contains one 4-5 word sentence at most. This may be a great book for a child learning to read on their own, but it wasn't worth the high price tag for us, and we returned this book in favor of Big Book of Airplanes by Caroline Bingham...a bigger book with more extensive descriptions at a lower cost.
