9780517596838: I Fly

From the exhilaration of take-off to the joy of seeing one's family at the arrival gate, here is an ideal book to prepare a child for his or her first airline flight--solo or en famille. Anne Rockwell, beloved author of many popular children's books on transportation, takes readers on a typical flight, describing in fascinating detail the many sights, sounds, and feelings of the journey from a young traveler's point of view. Annette Cable's (Me on the Map) detailed and vibrant illustrations perfectly complement the child-friendly text while her bird's-eye views show the earth spread out like a giant patchwork quilt.

From Booklist:

Ages 4^-7. Old hand Rockwell's latest is a fictional look at a young boy's plane trip without his parents. It begins on the title page, as the unnamed narrator packs his bag, and continues on the verso, where the lad says goodbye to Mom and Dad. The body of the narrative focuses on the actual flight, from the preparations for takeoff through time spent in the sky, and concludes with the landing and deplaning. The writing style is simple, yet the text manages to convey scientific information about the speed of the plane, cruising altitude, etc. Cable's colorful retro-edged artwork has appeal, though the illustrations don't always jibe with the text. As with many picture books these days, the supporting cast (including Captain Joseph Ramirez) is ethnically diverse. Kids will like the double-page paintings of the jet; their parents will appreciate the help preparing children for air travel. Julie Corsaro

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2. A child's account of his plane trip to visit his cousins. Through his narrative, readers are given a detailed account of what to expect, from the sound of the seat belt sign to the jet engines growing quiet as the plane lands. Rockwell includes practical tips such as yawning to keep one's ears from popping. The illustrations are clear and filled with color, but the characters are stiff and resemble old-fashioned cartoons. Because of the sound advice, however, this is a useful book for children embarking on a flight, either alone, like this young narrator, or with adults. It will also give a chuckle to some veteran flyers who are always glad to hear the sweet BUMP of the landing gear as it touches down.?Kathy Mitchell, Gadsden Co. Public Library, Quincy,
