Birds Can Fly and So Can I by Noa Nimrodi

In this rhyming story you child will soar with giraffe to heights unknown.  Giraffe moves from dreams to reality.  Your child will learn what it takes to make a dream become real.  Very nicely written and the illustrations are just as delightful.  Visit the author's site here where you can find coloring pictures to download as well as other information. 

"At twilight with a blowing breeze
Giraffe strolls through a forest of trees
She lifts her eyes and gazes high
She sees some birds take to the sky

Giraffe is left without a word
As she observes each pretty bird
She knows right then how she would love
To float and fly . so far above"

Birds Can Fly and So Can I is a charming and engaging book about the joy of dreaming and the thrill of achieving cherished goals. With endearing rhyme and spectacular illustrations, this book captivates its readers as they watch adorable animal buddies "clap with glee and chirp with praise" in support of Giraffe's dream to take flight. Birds Can Fly uses stunning artwork and witty verse to deliver its message about developing undiscovered talents. With innocence and appeal, it teaches children to stretch themselves to reach new heights and to cheer others on as they do the same. (Age 3+)
