Kindergarten-Grade 2-- As Harry and his hippopotamus family go off on vacation, readers learn about the steps that must be taken before boarding an airplane and observe many behind-the-scenes airport activities. Radford lists and illustrates the responsibilities of airport personnel and shows the workings of an air traffic control tower. The hippos board, and the discussion switches to the interior of the aircraft and the different parts that make up its skeleton. The instruments on the flight deck are given a detailed description; the endpages illustrate the rudder symbols for 20 international airlines and 13 aircraft. The flat pen-and-ink drawings with watercolor washes are bright and eye-catching, and the factual information is easy to read and understand. A useful title for primary-level units on careers or transportation and for reassuring first-time fliers. --Cassie Whetstone, Ridgeley Primary/Middle Sch . , W. VA
