Book: DK Big Book of Airplanes

http://rcm.amazon.com/e/cm?t=kiddandbook-20&o=1&p=8&l=as1&asins=0789465213&fc1=000000&IS2=1&lt1=_blank&m=amazon&lc1=0000FF&bc1=FFFFFF&bg1=FFFFFF&f=ifr

They zip through the air
With the greatest of ease
A marvel to watch
(Any toddler agrees)

Airplanes delight
As they skim o’er trees
If your kiddo loves flying
This book will appease

Note: Nick doesn’t just love airplanes. He is obsessed with them – which is probably why we’ve had this book out from the library for 9 weeks.

Online renewal is our friend.

Even though the book is geared for older readers (grades 2 and up), the pictures are large, colorful, and have enough detail to hold a toddler’s interest. Plus, I have learned never to underestimate how much information kiddos absorb.

Nick has gone from calling every plane overhead a “beh-bane” to “jumbo jet” – much eariser to understand. And, he has started identifying which plane he wants to read about each evening…by name.

Gee Bee
Stunt plane
Space shuttle

Wow, not bad for 2 1/2.

Bonus: You’ll become a plane expert too…just from reading the same thing over…and over…and over…
