My First Airplane Ride
This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Short, rhyming phrases record the events as a boy takes his first plane ride. Every incident along the way is chronicled here: packing, driving to the airport, getting boarding passes, going through security in stocking feet, waiting at the gate, etc. Though the double-page pictures are simple, the level of detail is well calibrated to the target audience. For example, one of Speir's acrylic paintings shows the family passing through the security area, an experience that may seem odd or invasive to young passengers. The illustration offers parents an opportunity to discuss details such as the metal-detecting gateway that passengers walk through, the tabletop where the family's carry-on bags (and teddy bear) await x-raying, and the electronic wand held near the boy's shirt by a security agent. Colorful and reassuring, this picture book is a good, practical choice for pre-travel reading." Booklist, September 2008. Buchnummer des Verkäufers ABE_book_usedgood_0761454365
Über diesen Titel:
A first airplane ride can be very exciting! Watching planes take off and land, going through security, walking the jet way, finding the right seat, watching out the window as the plane taxis down the runway, and flying up high in the sky and then, at the other end, Grandma waiting with a hug! Nancy Speir's acrylic illustrations deftly interpret the wonder and joy of a child's first plane-trip adventure.
