Learning To Fly
I just made one of the sweetest little discoveries...this tiny book translated from German entitled, "Learning To Fly" by Sebastian Meschenmoser. It's a story about a penguin who was flying happily along when he happened upon a flock of birds who told him that penguins can't fly... and so he crashed. Luckily, he met a chap who was determined to help him back up. I love the message of this book, don't you?!
This book encourages readers (young and old alike) to have faith in themselves and it serves as a reminder to support the dreams of our children (even if we have our doubts) and find a way to help them soar.
Did anyone ever knock the wind out of your sail?
Were you a child or an adult?
Was it by a well meaning loved one?
Was it by a jealous doubter?
(I'm wondering how many people have had this experience)
