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.
