A Day with Air Traffic Controllers: 05/30/08
At the start of this decade, Joanne Winne wrote a series of nonfiction "A Day With..." books aimed at children ages 4 to 8. A Day with Air Traffic Controllers follows what a typical day in an air traffic control tower is like.
The day is told with a series of color photographs and first person text that is easy to read but still focuses on introducing new vocabulary specific to the job. For example, the text: "A plane has landed on the runway. I tell the pilot where to park the plane" is followed by a full color photograph of an American Airlines plane on a runway with the tower in the background.
Other books in the series published by Children's Press (now part of Scholastic) include:
