Traveling by plane can be a stressful experience for anxious children (and their parents!) Prepare children for the unfamiliar sights and sounds of the airport experience in advance with this fun and gently humorous picture book.
Children will join Janet as she learns what to expect at each stage of a plane journey - from packing and getting ready to leave home, to traveling to the airport, checking in, going through security, boarding the plane, taking off, turbulence, using the on-board bathroom, landing, and baggage reclaim. Particular emphasis is placed on coping with sensory issues, and the book provides many welcome ideas for distractions and suggestions for activities to relieve boredom during the flight. It closes with a useful list of practical hints and tips for parents and caregivers.
With bright and cheerful illustrations, and a timeline on each page allowing children to keep track of where they are on their journey, this book will be an enjoyable read for children aged 3 to 12, and will be especially useful for those on the autism spectrum.
