Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What can you see when you go on an airplane journey? 1 airplane, 2 luggage carts, 3 check-in counters, and so much more! Using familiar airport signs, this striking book introduces little ones not only to numbers, but to the world around them. Equally suitable for the transportation-obsessed as well as any child learning to count, this fresh and dynamic picture book follow-up to Backseat A-B-See will entertain and educate at home, in the classroom, and on the go.

Review:

"This clever numeric companion to Lieshout's Backseat A-B-See also uses graphic signage to drive home its concept — this time with an air travel theme. As a family of three moves through an airport, numbers one to 10 take them through the check-in process: adhering to five signs, the boy tosses out his water bottle, the mother an aerosol can, and the father a pair of scissors; removing their shoes at the security check, the family bypasses six security officers. Cleverly, most of the other figures that are seen are white silhouettes, like the kind that often appear on signs on restroom doors. Just the thing to pack in a carry-on bag, van Lieshout's smart book is equal parts sleek modern art, counting primer, and entirely useful step-by-step guide for first-time fliers. Ages 3 — 6. Agent: Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Flight 1-2-3 by Maria van Lieshout is a great picture book to give to kids before going on a trip that involves an airplane. Each page covers some part of the trip plus a number. At the beginning it asks the question, “When taking a flight, what do you see?” The answers go from 1 to 10 for things like the airport, the escalators, check-in desks and airplane gates. It also goes to higher numbers that engage the imagination of young children, like “100 fastened seat belts” and “a million places to explore.” It all ends with a happy reunion with friends or relatives once the family gets to its destinations.

Van Lieshout’s illustrations are sparse and colorful, reminiscent ofsigns you see in airports with symbols for food and drink, restrooms and trash cans. With its sturdy, easy-to-wipe-off cover, Flight 1-2-3 can be easily taken along on a trip and referred to often as families go through each stage of travel.

The publisher provided me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
