    self awareness

    I used this with a three-year old. Before we even started reading, I asked him what he could do and I wrote his answers on chart paper. We discussed the title...Could she really fly? Why is she saying she can? We read the story and then reread it discussing how she could be all that she said. SHE IMAGINED!!! We then went back to his list and added all that he could do by imagining and that was ALOT. The list will remain on his door so new imagination experiences can be added. Society and schools (I'm a retired first grade teacher) are pushing academics on our little ones much too soon. They are forgetting that the best way a child learns is through play and allowing his imagination to grow.

    What a Let Down!

    While this is a charming little story, it is a half-hearted attempt to 'recreate' the original classic version of which this book is trying to imitate. I can only assume that in the interest of saving money the company has chosen to leave out a significant portion of the book from its original classic version. How disappointing to buy this to share with your child only to find out that it is no longer the same.

    A book that stays with you a lifetime

    I learned to read from this book and have never forgot it. I can remember at age 4 or 5 reading this. Or as my mother said I memorized it, from hearing it read to me so many times. LOL I have fondly thought of it many times over the years, thinking... 'a bird can fly, so can I. A cow can moo, I can too.' I always remember those few lines and have yearned to find the book. A few years ago I started looking for it and recently found it here in a search. I will be purchasing it now at age 41. It just brings me a good feeling that I've never lost. A book every child should have.

    Mary Blair!!

    One of the few Mary Blair children's books still in print.<BR/><BR/>But, you can get some of her concept work she did on both Cinderella and Alice In Wonderland (I'm waiting for Peter Pan,... hopefully someone will put that out soon!).
