This cute book from Ladybird has to be the most enjoyable way to teach small children about airports.
It's full of bright pictures and fun lift up flaps, showing everything from the people behind the mysterious door our bags go through after check in, to how our luggage looks when it's been xrayed. The book takes you on to the gate and finally onto the plane itself. On this last page, you can see the story book children sitting down nicely in their seats, quietly reading a book and playing with a teddy bear, without so much as a crumb in sight. If only!
A perfect book for young travellers, seasoned flyers or newbies - adults included. Just ask my husband.
