Overview

Bird That Wants to Fly is the story of a sad bird who has decided to walk instead of fly. About to step into a puddle as she can not change direction, bird is amazed to see the words "beautiful animal that I am" in the water. When she looks up she sees a blue eyed horse with blue mascara and a pink mane looking down at her. The horse asks, "Why are you walking not flying? Doesn't it take longer that way?" Beautifully illustrated, this archetypal story of resilience and transformation offers healing for children and adults who have been traumatized. Bird That Wants to Fly has also inspired the creation of a children's opera by composer Michael Raphael which has been performed by Trilogy: An Opera Company. The Bird That Wants to Fly opera with an introduction by the actor, Danny Glover, who narrates the story, is available at Amazon Music.
