What our experts think
The children were excited to get stuck into reading these books as the colour illustrations were simple, bright and clear. The children had lots of questions about the different countries the plane was flying to and about the aircraft itself. They really engaged with the books and we didn’t just read them once but several times. Our testers were also impressed with how much detail there was in each book about the plane and what the pilot does.
The length of each book is a good length and challenged them when they read parts by themselves which is great to see and children were able to recognise the procedures like having bags x-rayed and getting on and off the plane.
The children loved following the flags throughout the book and tracing each journey on the map.
