    2. I have been going to airports for about 50 years now and I am fairly familiar with what goes on there And, actually, I LIKE airports In fact, my wife and I once went to an airport for our anniversary We stayed at the hotel inside the airport, went out to eat in the airport, went shopping in the airport, and had a great time I was reminded of that event in this book when I read that an airport is like a city.One of the many creative aspects of The Airport Book is the presence of three layers of t [...]

    11. Wow The Airport Book conveys what a busy and hectic experience travel is, but doing so in a manner that is ultimately calming The narrative voice speaks in second person to the young reader, instructing them on what they will do and see during their ride to the terminal, the security line, waiting at the gate, the plane, departure, and arrival The artwork is insanely detailed Even though the book focuses on one family, I love how you can follow each passenger on their trip and see what happens w [...]

    12. I wish this book had been around 10 years ago It s a perfect book to read to children before their first flight It s not just about airplanes but the entire flying experience Lisa has captured so many of the details that a child might notice but parents eyes might miss I wasn t sure why take off wasn t mentioned, I m guessing it was a page count issue There s so much to see in the art, children will definitely want to pour over this book again and again

    15. The title is correct it is a book about the airport Each spread is worth a long look to see how Brown put together competing narratives in pictures and peritext not necessarily counterpoint, but definitely complementary storylines The main story is not super interesting of an informational book Instead it s the illustration that makes it an experience I ve always loved this kind of busy page, going back to the early Busytown books by Richard Scarry such as Best Word Book Ever , or many of the p [...]

A young boy, his little sister, and his parents are off on a trip As readers we follow along as the suitcases get packed including monkey , the taxi is loaded, the airport is navigated, and the plane takes off and arrives Each aspect of the journey is documented in the detailed and adorable illustrations I think the part of the book I enjoyed the most was looking at all the details in the illustrations It s fun to follow sock monkey s journey, as well as a strange shaped fragile package, and sev [...]

    17. This would be a good book to share with a young child who s about to embark upon their first airplane ride It follows an interracial family making their way to the airport, going through security, watching the plane get prepared, boarding, flying, and arriving at their destination Sharp eyed viewers can also see the experiences of other passengers on the same flight.It s a shame that events of the past 15 years make airline flying a much arduous process than it was when I was a younger person, [...]

    18. I think I m really getting into this author and her illustrations like Mummy Cat Fun, informational book for kids about the airport experience So much to look at Certain pages are reminiscent of Richard Scarry with so many things happening and so many diverse characters.

    19. A deft blend of information about a complex subject portrayed through the multi layered narratives of a monkey, a dog, new and jaded travelers, and details that are both universal and specific Layer in humor and heart to achieve a books that will appeal to all readers.

    20. This is a wonderful book for children who like planes or who are going to be riding on a plane for the first time This book is a one on one parent child sit down and read book because there is so much to look at and follow I would recommend this, for sure

    21. A nice primer for someone taking their first airplane trip This book is very detailed about each step in the process of traveling by plane I did find the pictures a little busy at times so this would be a one on one read for me so the pictures could be talked about.

    22. I think this is a great book for introducing children to the whole airport airplane ride experience And the reader can try to find the little girl s toy monkey in every spread The colorful illustrations are very adept at depicting everything in the airport and on the airplane.

    23. The airport can be crazy and overwhelming even for adults This book would be a great way to introduce kids to what is going happen when they go on a flight and experience the airport for the first time.

    28. SUCH great pictures The text is a straightforward child s POV explanation of what happens when you take a plane trip But the pictures tell about 5 other stories My ten year old and I really enjoyed flipping back and forth to follow what happens to some of the different characters Fun So if I were using this in a classroom, I would use it to talk about second draft reading term coined by Kelly Gallagher.

    29. Great picture book about what it s really like to visit an airport in 2016 Wonderfully diverse, with the main character family having a dark skinned father and light skinned mother Lots of side stories in the illustrations make it fun to peruse the pictures as you read Many details that will be noticeable the times you read the book Endpapers are fun, with the beginning destination at the start and the final destination at the back.

    30. The illustrations are wonderful This book is told from the big brother s point of view There is so much amusing detail that can stir up nice side conversations with your child on your lap as you plan your family flight or review your recent vacation Terms like baggage carousel can easily be defined using their context within the page.
