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.
