Rhythmic noises make for a great read-aloud.A final double-page spread helps clarify some of the sights and physical sensations of a plane ride, from luggage loading to queasiness."Will no doubt provide comfort to young, first-time flyers." -Booklist"A contribution both cogent and soothing to the scanty library of preflight, or in-flight, reading matter for young, infrequent flyers."-Kirkus Reviews
