Description

When Angela goes to the airport with her father, he gets "lost." As she wanders around looking for him, she sees an empty airplane. Once inside, she presses one button, then another, until the plane takes off. Luckily, one of the buttons is for the control tower. Angela survives the adventure without a scratch. The same can't be said for the plane. With simplified text but all the original illustrations, Angela's Airplane Board Book is a wonderful way to engage very young children in a simple story. The repetitive text makes the story somewhat predictable, thus encouraging children to chime in. Michael Martchenko's funny illustrations and variations in the text colors and positioning make this a visual treat as well as a story-time favorite.
