My favorite part of this book would be the illustrations. Such cute toys. It's a fun flying trip, too, which makes me think the toddlers will enjoy this. I just have to think some more on what to have them do.

12/9/15 Used in preschool for Things We Love at the Holidays: Presents, these guys being toys. I had us starting our engine and flying. They got involved and it went well.

Toy dogs go on a pilot patrol to make sure none of the toys in a boy's room go missing. A fun filled exciting high flying read. It will sure beg for a "read again" from your child. BR

Stuffed animal puppies fly around the house just like they would if a young one was holding the plane. Good for toddler storytimes.

I have read this book approx. 1000 times since it is one of Isaac's favorites. He has parts memorized and recites them at random times throughout the day....

We learned flying planes is great fun. Pups think they can fly but they cannot.

I love to write bouncy picture books that are fun to read aloud. I especially enjoy writing in rhyme and creating books that get kids hooked on reading.

I hold a degree in magazine journalism and Spanish language and literature from Syracuse University. I live (and write) near the beach in Delaware with my husband and son.
