Description
A humorous but enlightening book about a young bird learning to fly. While it shows the importance of family, home, and love, it encourages children to learn new skills that will make them more independent. Whether it is learning to read, learning to play the piano or hitting a ball with a bat, such knowledge will give a child confidence, and teach them skills that will continually enhance them for a lifetime. Learning may be scary for some children. This book gives an example of a young bird learning to fly in an unconventional way. Since some children need a different approach to learning, the book shows them that they can be proud of learning in a different manner. It is written in simple, rhyming text with descriptive illustrations that make it a perfect book for both reading aloud and viewing its many images.
