Follow a family and the youngest member’s favorite sock monkey through all the inner and outer workings of an airport.
In a book that is as intriguing as it is useful and entertaining, we follow a family on its way through the complexities of a modern-day airport. From checking bags and watching them disappear on the mysterious conveyor belt, to security clearance and a seemingly endless wait at the gate to finally being airborne.
But wait! There’s more! The youngest family member’s sock monkey has gone missing. Follow it at the bottom of the page as it makes a journey as memorable as that of the humans above.
This book is all about the airport, where it is, what you do there, what an airplane ride is like, etc. This would be a great one to read for children who are about to go on an airplane as it would introduce them to everything that will happen and let them know what to expect.
