PK4 Stars Out Of 5Amazing Airplanes -- good bookNovember 22, 2014PKQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3My grandson likes this book but looked for more pictures of airplanes as a 16 month old is more interested in. Finding picture books of airplanes to meet his love of 'planes' is difficult but this is a good book. He does like the animals.
