(recently published - 2012)
We've had this book for a while (along with Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site) and we love both! I personally like this one better because I like the rhyming, but Mason's not picky and often chooses both when I ask him what book he wants to read.
And something REALLY fun to do after reading this book? If you are in the New Jersey area (or close or are planning a vacation), Meghan shared an AWESOME place called Diggerland that would be SO fun to take your kids to!
This book is your basic, run of the mill board book. Technically Mason is way too old for this type of book, but he pulls it out time and time again so I go with it. He loves to see the people on the plane, see the different type of planes, and see them loading the planes for take off. He's been really into planes in general these days and always points out if he hears/sees one in the sky so this book has been pulled out more than a few times recently.
I didn't take any pictures of us doing any activities after reading this book, but should you want to do an activity, I would recommend trying to get as close as possible to your local airport and having a picnic and watching the planes come in/land or watching a plane themed movie (our favorite is Planes : Fire and Rescue).

(Little Golden Book)
It's no secret that we love 'things that go' in this household. Mason has been obsessed with cars, trains, boats, and planes for a while. And when we got this Little Golden Book in our Secret Santa Mommy and Me Book Exchange in December, a certain little boy was pretty excited. When we first got it, he just wanted to flip through the book and look at all the car pictures. But now, 7 months later, he will actually sit still long enough for me to read him a story. And I love it because there are a few different stories in it, so when Mason's constantly picking the same book to read, I can choose which one I want to read and things don't get monotonous and boring for mama.
