    Comments about Amazing Airplanes:

    This book is all about planes. It rhymes and it has a lot of information about planes and how they work. I thought this was a cute little story. It would be a great story to read a child that is getting ready to ride a plane for the first time to let them know what is going to happen.

    My child is obsessed by transport and loves this book. This book is in the box set which is well used in our household.

      Comments about Amazing Airplanes:

      I read this to my baby at bedtime, and while he is too young to understand it, he loves the rhyming sounds and the colourful pictures. I find it the perfect length for his attention span. I love that the story is factual so that as my baby grows into a little boy he will get more value out of the book. In the meantime, it's one of my favourites to read - perfect length, fun rhyming, and educational. Also love the factual diagram at the back of the book. Note, there is a 10 book box set which is worth considering.
