Pick of the Week: The Boy and the Airplane

The Boy and the Airplane by Mark Pett
I love wordless picture books, as they are wonderful opportunities for storytelling and stretching your imagination. It's the perfect way for children (and adults) who are not confident readers yet to tell a story. Take a break from reading aloud to your child and have them read to you - no matter what their age or skill! In this book by author and illustrator Mark Pett, a boy receives the gift of a red toy airplane. Unfortunately, it's not long before the toy airplane gets stuck up on the roof. But he has a plan to retrieve it. It's a long term plan and is a bit humorous, but eventually he accomplishes his task and passes the gift on to a child.
