Goodnight, Goodnight, Vehicles of Flight! Where Do Jet Planes Sleep at Night? by Brianna Caplan Sayres

We know where Santa's sleigh is parked tonight. But where do big airliners go after unloading passengers at their gates and their baggage into carts on the tarmac?

DO DADS SHARE BEDTIME TALES OF TRANS-ATLANTIC FLIGHTS?

Do the big 777s say nighty-night with tall tales of their long hauls to Australia?

WHERE DO SKYWRITING PLANES SLEEP AFTER WRITING IN THE SKY?

What about all the other smaller planes seen in the sky? What about those other flying vehicles like hang gliders and hot-air balloons? And where does Air Force One go to rest when the President is back in bed at the White House?

Where do all those awesome aircraft go when their workdays are done?

Why, they're hanging out in their home hangars with their families, tucked into their berths by their mom and daddy planes with hugs and a nice change of oil and a bedtime story, in Brianna Caplan Sayres' newest in her series, Where Do Jet Planes Sleep at Night? (Random House, 2017, where they have sweet dreams--

THEY DREAM OF TAKE-OFFS AND LANDINGS.

With comically anthropomorphic flying machines of all kinds, illustrator Chris Slade keeps 'em flying, with a cozy place to park their engines and wings when it's time for a comfy layover, just like their little human admirers, and Sayres' storytelling leads little lovers of aircraft toward parking themselves in their own little hangars for the night, while also introducing many types of flight. Says Kirkus Reviews, "Combining a quiet, nocturnal story with the ever popular subject of flying machines, this is a nifty bedtime book for budding aviators."

And for fans of Sherry Duskey Rinker's best-sellers, Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and Steam Train, Dream Train 1-2-3, share this one with others in Sayres' cozy series, such as Where Do Steam Trains Sleep at Night? or Where Do Diggers Sleep at Night?
