This Plane

by Paul Collicut

Published by U.S. edition: Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 2000
32 pages
ISBN: 0-374-37494-5

Ages 2 - 5

Vivid colors dominate paintings of planes described in pairs on opposite pages by contrasting certain characteristics or functions: "This plane goes fast. / This plane goes slow" and "This plane carries passengers. / This plane carries cargo." The high-interest topic is sure to make this book a hit with many preschoolers who will undoubtedly want to have it read over and over again as they study the details in the illustrations. For budding plane enthusiasts, the names of the actual planes are provided in captions accompanying smaller illustrations on the endpages. Artist/author Paul Collicutt also created the popular book This Train (Farrar Straus Giroux, 1999), which uses a similar pattern. CCBC categories: Concept Books.
