Lush New Illustrated Picture Book Is A Charming Journey of Mindfulness, Nature and Gratitude

Come here, plane!

A thrilling plane chase ends with a young girl learning to be aware and appreciate what’s already right in front of her

THORNHILL, ONTARIO, CA, CANADA, April 3, 2022 / — When a little girl dreams of going to faraway places to see beautiful things, nature’s animals help her discover that she has only to look around to marvel and beauty. With Come Here, Airplane!, Eric Shatzky masterfully weaves a poignant and beautifully illustrated picture book story that teaches children an important lesson in mindfulness and gratitude by living in the present.

When the girl sees an airplane in the sky, she dreams of going to all the faraway places it might take her to see beautiful things. “Come here, airplane!” she cries running into a field to catch him. Along the way, she passes a rabbit in its cozy burrow, a goose inviting her to swim in a beautiful cool pond, vibrant yellow flowers, and an orchard with its deliciously crisp apples and beautifully intricate leaves.

As the plane flies further and further, the little girl is devastated to never see the beauty of the world…until the bunny jumps up and reminds her of all the wonderful nature delights she has crossed and who were all around her if she really had to take notice.

In the spirit of a timeless classic like A Good Day by Kevin Henkes, Come Here, Airplane by Eric Shatzky! is a warm and positive story about living in the present. Shatzky expertly shares the rewarding consequence of living with awareness, intention, and gratitude, a valuable practice best learned early. Families and educators of young children will appreciate the opportunity to impress this message through Shatzky’s precious stories.
