ea. vol: illus. by author. unpaged. CIP. Crowell. May 1986. PSm $3.50; PLB $7.89. PreS-Gr 1 Simple books describing four distinct modes of transportation. In each volume, different types of each vehicle are presented (rowboats, tugboats, fireboats, etc.) as well as some of the usual scenes surrounding each (e.g., workers checking a passenger plane). Brightly colored illustrations outlined in heavy black convey a bold and simple first impression, yet they portray a good number of accurate details that preschoolers find so fascinating. The people shown are Barton's charming generic representations, differentiated largely by clothing, skin and hair color. The repetitive nature of the minimal text is choppy and results in some monotony, but such constructions do make the series valuable for beginning readers. Visual stand-outs in any toddler, preschool, or beginning reader collection. Linda Wicher, Lincolnwood Public Library, Ill.

Children explore the many ways we use airplanes, from seaplanes to crop dusters to planes that write messages in the sky. With simple text and vibrant illustrations, readers will learn about transportation by plane.

Kirkus Reviews says Byron Barton's Planes "will delight the youngest, and have enough meat for older preschoolers and beginning readers."
