Planes Fly! by George Ella Lyon - ADVISABLE

Lyon, George Ella  Planes Fly!  Illustrations by Mick Wiggins  Simon and Schuster, 2013.  $16.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.   

This book gives a brief look at different kinds of airplanes-prop planes, jet planes, etc.  It goes over the different things that planes are used for—putting out fires, hauling cargo, transporting people.  Then it takes the reader through a flight on an airplane until the landing.   

Told in rhyme, the short and simple airplane descriptions make for a great read aloud.  The illustrations use soft colors and are retro but match the text great.  This is a fun addition for those boys who love trucks, planes and cars. 

EL (K-3)-ADVISABLE.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
