“Why can’t I Fly?
She wondered why?
I’m nice and tall
Not like Molly
Who’s really small…”
So starts the fantasy story from the new author and illustrator Trisha Bridger.
As you turn each page it takes you on the journey of a girl’s dream to fly and how she realises that dream…
'Why can’t I Fly?' is a delightful story written in a lyrical rhyming style which is fun and easy to read. It is aimed at pre-school children, self-readers and anyone who remembers that they once dreamed of flying; for all children who frequently ask “Why can’t I fly?” and for all the times they try!
The theme introduces new experiences and challenges for young children: shows the importance of seeking advice or support: highlights the vital need to talk openly: ask for help and share worries, reinforcing that they can be resolved. The story provides an opportunity for children to discuss further their hopes and any fears they may have. It portrays the invaluable need for positive attachments and positive adult role models and reminds us all that childhood should be a joyous fun time of play and self-discovery.
The story’s overall theme reflects that sometimes things that we want to happen might not be possible in the way we envisaged, but can often be achieved by a slightly different route.
