The Airport Book
By Lisa Brown
Roaring Book Press, 2016. Picture Book.
In the days before taking a child on their first flight, put reading this book at the top of your checklist. Going to the airport for the first time brings new sights and the unknown. Brown captures the experience in a fun, entertaining way. A little girl is in the process of going on a trip with her family and trying to keep track of her sock monkey packed away in her bag.
Each page perfectly describes, in picture form, the intricate details of traveling. There are also side comments from the crowd, including a couple where one asks the other, "Do you have the tickets?" providing amusement and information at the same time.
