Overview

Picture and cartoon art has been used for many years to teach themes and messages to children, and in some instances, to adults as well. It is the intent of the artist and the author to encourage children to dream. In children's dreams, all things are possible, whereas in reality, a dreamer may find that which can be actually achieved.

Many years ago, Thomas Edison worked to find hundreds and hundreds of ways not to make a light bulb! One day, after all of these experiments, Mr. Edison made a light bulb that worked. Thank you, Mr. Edison for dreaming!

Go, little children, and dream. But one day your dream must "touch the ground," then you must go and try to do. Dream on, dream and do. Page 32, the last page of the book, says "Go Egl, Go and Fly!"

God Bless the little children,

Dan Williams

Dan Williams is the father of three grown children and he dedicates this book to his three grandchildren. Karl Baker has been a natural duck artist for 50 years.

    Excellent and delightfully uplifting !

    Although at a glance this appears to be "JUST" for kids, the story is uplifting and encouraging for ALL ! Sometimes life wants to keep you at a "waddle".
