    I Love Flap Your Wings!

    I am an adult and this is one of my favorite books! Mr. and Mrs. Bird are great parents and know just when to let "Junior" leave the nest. They work day in and day out with seemingly no reward only to learn that "Junior" is a "bird" of a different sort. This story can be used as a metaphor for parenting, adoption, and/or letting go of adult kids. I give it to all of my friends when their children graduate from high school. I had one friend tell me that it was a catharsis, allowing the tears to flow while experiencing great pride in her independent daughter who was "flying from the nest". Get it if you are a parent. Read it to your child then keep it for yourself!

    Great "Read to Me Book"

    Three of my grandchildren have "read" this book on my NookColor NookBook. They like the story and the fact that they can either read for themselves or have it read to them. The 7 & 8 year olds like to have it read to them as well as the 5 year old. A good book for quiet time when I can't play with them for a moment.
