Amazing Aeroplanes

text by Tony Mitton,

illustrated by Ant Parker Published First 1998

Age 3+

From as long as I can recall our son has been into aeroplanes. He’s been fortunate to have flown in a few in his life too. Now that he’s at an age that he’s able to articulate clearly, his love for planes is expressed daily.


“Amazing Aeroplanes” describes in pictures the entire plane experience in an extremely child-friendly way. Our son has recently experienced a ride on a plane and could relate to the illustrations of the arrival at the airport why we check-in for the flight and how our luggage gets loaded onto the plane all the way to arriving at our destination.



It’s an easy, quick read for both the parent and the child whilst the illustrations enhance the reading experience beautifully, capturing the essence of the experience of a flight in an aeroplane perfectly.

It certainly is a stunning introduction to the amazing world of aeroplanes for children not having experienced it yet and allows those that have flown in an aeroplane before to relate and affirm the experience they had.

Yay/Nay – YAY, I recommend it.


Children's Book ReviewFirst Explorers – In the Jungle: text and illustration by Macmillan Publishers Published First 2017

Age 3+

This is a sturdy book with pages that push, pull and slide. My son loved the interactiveness of the book. I enjoyed the book as much as my son did as it let him learn about the different animals of the wild in a fun way, even sharing some of the sounds made. It also made him search for some of the animals that were mentioned in the text taking the engagement between the toddler and the reading experience to a new level completely.

We enjoyed searching for some of the animals the book suggested we look for that were mentioned in the text taking the engagement between the toddler and the reading experience to a new level completely.

It’s a quick and easy read with beautiful illustrations, creatively capturing the animals of the wild in full colour.

Yay/Nay – YAY, I recommend it.
