Hello Airplane - a book review

Quote of the day:

"Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are."                                                - Mason Cooley

Today's featured book:

Title:  hello, airplane
Author/Illustrator:  Bill Cotter
Ages:  2-5

Let's look inside shall we?

About the book:

This book would be a perfect companion to a small child on her first airplane flight or even before, to prepare her for that exciting ride of her life high up in the sky.  This book documents an airplane's journey from the time of liftoff to the time of touch down.  It exhibits wonderful vocabulary words such as hello (airplane), over (trees, mountains and people), through (clouds) and above (birds) just to name a few.  The book has a very happy and uplifting vibe and the illustrations are colourful, big and engaging, just a perfect match for the sparse text. Both are so kid- friendly and appealing to that specific age group.   I highly recommend this book.

About the author:

Bill was slowly and evenly cooked in the warm embrace of Midwest suburbia. He studied illustration and then worked for several years as a pre-k art teacher - until he finally put two and two together and started making books for kids. Bill has since moved to Baltimore and spends his time drawing, playing music, and daydreaming. 

Book Review Rating:  8 (Fantastic!)

Read on and read always!  Take a book!
