Description

Follow a family and the youngest member's favorite sock monkey through all the inner and outer workings of an airport.

In a book that is as intriguing as it is useful and entertaining, we follow a family on its way through the complexities of a modern-day airport. From checking bags and watching them disappear on the mysterious conveyor belt, to security clearance and a seemingly endless wait at the gate to finally being airborne.

But wait! There's more! The youngest family member's sock monkey has gone missing. Follow it at the bottom of the page as it makes a journey as memorable as that of the humans above.

Reviews

"Brightly colored people and baggage fill double-page spreads, nudging readers to look closely at faces, stances, attitudes, and activities to spin narratives for the travelers. Strategically placed text, with modest typeface and subtle sizing, makes the story-building straightforward and the busy pictures navigable. Instructional, comforting, and threaded with multiple air-travel story strands, this travelogue delivers at many altitudes."--Kirkus Reviews, starred

"Planes fascinate children, and there is no shortage of books to develop that interest. There's always room for one more, especially one this good. VERDICT A must-buy for most libraries. "--School Library Journal, starred

"Whether kids are readying for their first plane trip, wondering where parents go after they're dropped off at the terminal, or just looking for some imagined travel, this will set them on the runway."--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred

"This is one of those books you could look at forever and never run out of new things to notice, smile at, and fold into the next reading. Sky-high in concept, execution, and kid appeal; the only airport book you'll ever need."--Horn Book, starred

"Amusing Easter eggs abound, and Brown's calm delineation of the mysteries and mundanities of air travel should reassure reluctant travelers. "--Publishers Weekly
