Love Never Gives Up--
There once was a boy who had a kite. He loved the kite very much. Every day the pair would have a new adventure together. But one day the kite made a terrible decision that changed everything! Could one little kite survive in the world all by itself?
In this tender and triumphant tale, award-winning author and illustrator Steve Björkman paints a subtle but clear portrait of redemption, masterfully capturing the essence of God's redeeming grace.
A story soaring with meaning not only for boys and girls, but for men and women of all ages, The Flyaway Kite offers a high-flying parable of God's love for each one of us--and of our desperate need to be connected to Him.

I do storytelling to five classes of combined 1st/2nd DPS grade school children during the school year and I bought this book because I was looking for a story to 'tell' for the month of March. The title of this book and the illustration on the cover grabbed me because kite flying is a popular activity in the windy month of March. (Or used to be) However, noting that this book was published by Doubleday's Religious Book Publishing Group I knew I would have to find a way to omit any theological messages the story was written to convey, because those are prohibited in the public school system -- whether for the purpose of reading OR telling. What I was NOT expecting to have to do, though, was 'flesh out' the narrative of this story, to the degree I found it necessary to do, for telling to my 7 and 8 yr. olds! Possibly, the book was written for younger aged kids, but for 1st/2nd graders, I felt it required much more descriptive, interesting text. Nonetheless, I was glad to have the author's imaginative basic storyline to build on and the discussions I had with the kids after the 'tellings' indicated to me they all pretty much 'got' the message without using the author's religious association.
