    While graphic novels are on the rise among many, Airplane Adventure is a great example of one. The story is about a young boy named Juan and his sister Anna who are on a mission to visit a special someone. When first reading the book I was highly impressed with actual setup of the book. It is very engaging for a reader. A few literary elements caught my eye while reading this book. The book uses onamonapia.

The story is about a young boy named Juan and his sister Anna who are on a mission to visit a special someone. When first reading the book I was highly impressed with actual setup of the book. It is very engaging for a reader. A few literary elements caught my eye while reading this book. The book uses onamonapia. For example, if there was a car in the story, the word “vroom” would be found near the illustration. In addition, the book used repetition during different parts of the plot. This help readers become more comfortable with different vocabulary. As for the visual elements, the book used panels to show the story line. Reading from left to right you can see the way the plot moves. This helps connect what is being read with what is actually going on. Another visual element is that the regular words are in black print while the words which are actual sounds (vroom) are in boxed letters and are in color. This helps the readers distinguish between the different types of words. The boxes really show the meaning of the graphic novel because you are actually seeing the plot move from panel to panel. However, on a more constructive note, I would recommend maybe having flaps rather than just boxes. Flaps would be more engaging and would make it even more of a graphic novel. Overall it was a great read!

In the end of the book there are also discussion questions and a writing prompt to build on the story. In the classroom, I might use one of the suggestions that the book provides. One of the writing prompts asks students to focus on sound and actions words from the books, and then create their own sentences from those words. The standard that this activity hits on is CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.K.1.B: Use frequently occurring nouns and verbs.

Children would share their work with classmates in small groups.

    This book is a good beginner book as it includes large numbers to steer children in the directing of which they should follow the box clips and story line. It teaches children to follow text structure along with a simple storyline and great visuals to hold a young readers attention. The theme is enjoyable, the text is simple, and the visuals are vibrant.

    Juan and Anna are flying to see their grandmother. They are very excited to fly on the airplane. This is a fun adventure for the siblings. I enjoyed this book because I think it is relatable to some children. However, if children have never flown a plane before, Juan and Anna give them a great sense of what that might be like. It is an easy read and can be read with children of all ages. I also loved how it gave you instructions on how to read a graphic novel if you have never read one before.

I would probably use this book during my transportation unit paired with books such as Everything Goes: In the Air by Brian Biggs or Freight Train by Donald Crews. Quote: "The airport is busy." (I liked the illustrations that went along with this text box: babies crying, people talking, machines beeping, etc.)

The way Cari Meister and Marilyn Janovitz present the information about airplanes and traveling would have made it so much easier for me to learn if I had this book when I was younger! Text-to-Text: This book reminded me of a series I read when I was younger from American Girl called, "A Smart Girl's Guide to...", on various subjects like boys or middle school. Both of these books offer step-by-step guides with illustrations to surviving a "situation" like passing time on the plane or learning how to open a school locker. They both introduce students to different procedures and how to solve their problems in real life. Text-to-World: This book is an engaging story with short text and simple illustrations. It might be a great resource for struggling readers or ESL students. In the beginning of the book, it includes a tutorial on how to read a graphic novel and how to read onomatopoeic words for sound effects which would allow readers to engage more in their reading. As a graphic novel, not only did it introduce the process of how to read it, but it included information about airplanes, airports, and traveling for kids to prepare themselves on a future trip.

    An introduction to graphic novels, this one follows Anna and Juan as they prepare to visit their grandmother in Mexico. After packing up the things they need, they go to the airport, follow various procedures in order to get on the plane, and then fly south. I like the simple text and illustrations, and how the title not only introduces readers to what's involved in airplane travel, but also how it walks readers through how to read a graphic novel.

    This book introduces children to graphic novels. It gives directions on how to read a graphic novel correctly. This book is about a brother and sister called Juan and Anna. They are going to visit their grandmother in Mexico. To get there they must fly on an airplane. It is about their adventure on an airport and airplane. It’s an excellent book.

    I chose this book because of the content. Growing up and realizing that a lot of people have never been in an airplane before was really odd for me. I think that this book introduces airplanes in a fun light.

    This My First Graphic Novel explains the process of flying on an airplane. I traveled on them alone as a child and this book would have made me less afraid of those adventures. Like the rest in this series, it includes a glossary, discussion questions, and writing prompts at the end. An educational, fun intro to graphic novels.
