From School Library Journal:

Grade 5-8-Airplane enthusiasts and children who recognize the term "Air Force One" will enjoy this title, and the attractive cover will quickly grab readers' attention. Beginning with FDR's secret first flight, to Casablanca in 1943, Santella presents short histories and descriptions of the various planes that have been specifically designed for use by the president. It was during the Kennedy years that the Air Force coined the phrase "Air Force One" to designate any plane on which the commander in chief is a passenger. The text is current, mentioning the plane's role on 9/11. The format is attractive, with wide margins, appropriate vocabulary, stylized topic headings, and vintage and color photography. Captions and additional information at the bottom of some pages add to the text. There is mention of where to see some of the retired aircraft, but there is no glossary or bibliography. This unique title offers an easy way to learn about a small segment of history and pick up some interesting bits of trivia at the same time. A priority purchase to add that extra touch of class to collections.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4-7. Santella introduces presidential airplanes from the "flying boat" of a propeller plane that took Franklin Roosevelt to Casablanca in 1943 to Air Force One, the jumbo jet that now carries president George W. Bush and his staff. Besides the president-by-president history of significant flights, the book discusses the modern-day "flying White House," which includes a presidential office, workstations for staff and reporters, two galleys for food preparation, and military capabilities. Photographs, including many in color, illustrate the book. The book ends with a short list of museums where former presidential planes can be seen and a video and Web sites on the subject. A brief but informative resource. Carolyn Phelan
