From the security checks and luggage check-in at the airport to the final descent and waiting by the carousel to retrieve his cases, Bernard takes readers on his journey with him, sharing all the new thing he sees and learns as he travels to visit his friend.
Bernard’s Plane Trip is a great introduction to plane travel for young children who might be feeling a little bit nervous about their first flight. As Bernard describes his experience, children learn about all the practical aspects of plane travel for passengers – safety routine announcements, meals, sleeping, toilets, keeping busy and the tummy tickling feeling of take-offs and landings.
A simple story designed to inform children about what happens during a plane flight, Bernard’s Plane Trip is ideal to reassure children who are unsure of what to expect when travelling by plane.
