What to Read Wednesday: Airplane Books for Kids

The Best Airplane Books for Kids

This blog uses affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy.

What kid doesn’t love airplanes? They are big, loud, fast, and best of all, they fly! My boys have enjoyed reading about planes as they’ve grown, and our book collection has grown with them.

Among our favorite airplane books listed below are a couple of books for teens–Code Name Verity was a hands-down favorite in our teen literature discussion group, and my oldest son absolutely loved Roald Dahl’s stories of his WWII exploits in Going Solo. Our literature group went on two plane-related field trips that had a huge impact on them, and which you can read more about by clicking here.

Be sure to check out our list of fun airplane books, and leave a comment with any titles that you would add to the list. You are also invited to link up any of your family friendly posts below.

Happy flying!

    What would you say is the youngest age for appropriateness of the Roald Dahl book? I know my 10 yo could probably read the words, but I’m wondering about content. Thanks!

      My oldest read it when he was in middle school. I would say it is best for ages 12 and up due to the vocabulary, but it would be a fun read-aloud for a 10-year-old. It’s got typical Roald Dahl humor and lots of adventure–the fun part is that it’s a true story of Roald Dahl’s experiences as a RAF pilot. Did you know that he and Ian Fleming were both spies during the war? Roald Dahl is said to have helped inspire James Bond, and he even wrote the screenplay for ‘You Only Live Twice.’ Roald Dahl is one of my son’s most favorite authors.

        Definitely sounds like something my boys would like!

    These are great! We read a few of them before my boys went on their first plane trip. We also read a cute what to expect when you’re at the airport book (that I just can not find the name of now!).

      It’s a great idea to prepare kids for a plane trip by reading about what to expect. Thanks so much for sharing, and come back with that title if you find it! I’d love to add it to the list. 🙂
