Flight 1-2-3by Maria Van Lieshout
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"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.
