    1 thought on “Learning to Fly”

    1. The premise is great--a penguin thinks he can fly and he DOES until a flock of "regular" birds flies past him and says, "Penguins can't fly." Then, he falls. Classic example of how so many of us fail to follow our true passion and talents simply because of what is "expected" of us. Shudder! The little penguin meets a very nice man who hears his story and decides to help him learn how to fly. They try all sorts of things but nothing works. Finally, one day, they are outside and a flock of penguin [...]

    2. I think this book is a little gem--possibly some form of genius. I'm not even sure why. The illustrations are HIL-arious. And I'm pretty sure there's a hidden message in there. Fly, little penguins of the world! Fly!

    3. I love the illustrations in this book. They are, in my opinion, the perfect balance between sketchy and detailed. And hilarious. The words by themselves would be an odd sort of preachy fable, but combined with the pictures this book becomes a hilarious and encouraging story about doing the impossible.

    4. This is the best book. I am delighted every time I rediscover that I actually BOUGHT the book after reading it through in the bookstore. I re-read it pretty much on the regular. The story isn't really special, but the telling of it is, and the illustrations are perfect. No, that's not eve enough. The whole book is perfect. The gentleness of the tone ties in with the sketchiness of the drawings. There's so much trust wrapped up in the human's doggedness to get the penguin into the air, and in the [...]

    5. Kids will probably focus on the humor, especially in the illustrations. If they miss the theme, they'll still enjoy the fantasy. Adults will focus on the theme, and give this to high school graduates etc. My inner child and I loved everything about it and want to own a copy.Meschenmoser is indeed one of my very favorite authors.

    6. Lots of good discussion could come from this story. A man comes upon a penguin who says he's been flying (even though penguins can't fly). But one day, when he is flying, he encounters a group of other birds. They tell him, "Penguins can't fly", he believes them (even though evidence says otherwise) and he crashes. He and his human try everything to help him regain the ability to fly: a training program, books, kites, rockets, you name it. Nothing seems to work until a penguin colony flies overh [...]

    8. I really liked this picture bookbut it is more of a picture book for adults to read and think about. I don't think kids will love the pictures or get the point of the story. But this is a good one to share with a grown-up friend who needs a happy thought at the end of a hard day.

    9. Good story about believing in yourself. The penguin could fly just fine until he was told that penguins can't fly.

    10. Thinking about the start of school, this book has a powerful message. When we believe in ourselves anything is possible.

    11. This went straight into the most beloved books section of my heart - I can't wait for the next time someone to asks me for a children's picture book suggestion.
