Flight 1-2-3 - Maria van Lieshout



Released March 2013

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

The use of color in Flight 1-2-3 is one thing that catches the eye in this children's picture book. You won't find a lot of colors. All illustrations are done in black, white, gray, red, yellow, and blue. I adore that touch.

The story itself is simple. It's a counting book set in and around an airport. Pages are easy to read, perfect for beginning readers, and it also gives a good presentation into what a child would experience when flying to another city, state, or country.

You have things like "1 airport," "5 trash cans," or "10 gates." It expands to talking about altitude and mileage too.

If you have a fearful traveler, Flight 1-2-3 is a great way to introduce them to what a flight is going to entail.
