Review quotes

Underwood adds another meaningful picture book to her lineup as she dismantles the scariest aspects of airplane travel, making the process both accessible and fun. . . . There's plenty of storytime potential as the adult bear addresses the bear cub with reassurances and advice . . Wedelich's digital art complements the talent of Underwood's writing as she captures the bear cub's glossy-eyed excitement [and] a plethora of background details for viewers to indulge in . . . Read this book to alleviate some of the stress of travel. —BCCB (starred review)
