ALL ABOARD! PLANES is another delightful installment in this informative picture book series. The book explains key information about planes and flying, such as how weather impacts flights, types of planes, and planes that made history. The book is fully illustrated with paragraphs to describe different elements of each topic.

What I loved: This is such a clever series that works well for older preschoolers and young elementary school aged readers who love vehicles. The language is super-accessible and easy to understand with enough detail that children will be learning some new things without feeling bogged down by information. The colorful images and illustrations for each element add to the fun and work well for the picture book aged crowd, who need visuals to stay engaged and focused. There is plenty to learn on each page, as young readers can easily explore the different topics. The font is easy to read throughout, with color changes to white on dark backgrounds that makes it clear on each page.

One of the best parts is the last page spread where it invites children to think of how planes may be different in the future. This invitation to imagination is always a big hit at our house, starting young readers off with some ideas before they can come up with their own. The backmatter includes an image of the inside of a plane for additional play as well.

Final verdict: ALL ABOARD! PLANES is a delightful and educational picture book that is sure to be a hit with vehicle lovers.

Planes is a fun little story that follows Karl the Kiwi on his adventure learning to fly!

There is so much information pumped into this 20-ish page children's book. From how to become a pilot to aerodynamics to weather, there is something to learn with every spread.
Aimed at children 6 - 9 years of age, I feel like this is a bit much reading wise, for a single sitting and quite a bit for an adult to read aloud.

The illustrations are fun and vibrant. They tie in with the text perfectly, not only elaborating what is written in the text, but also lending themselves to being an additional learning resource.
