Sometimes You Fly
Written by Newbery Medalist and bestselling author Katherine Applegate, a sweet book of encouragement, filled with humor and insight into the effort behind any meaningful accomplishment in life. A perfect gift for baby shower, birthday, or graduation.
This gorgeous gift book, equally perfect for preschool graduations or college commencements, baby showers or birthdays, is an inspirational tribute to the universal struggles and achievements of childhood. Beginning with a first birthday, the scenes travel through childhood triumphs and milestones, coming full circle to graduation. A magical blend of succinct text and beautiful watercolors renders each moment with tenderness and humor and encourages readers to “remember then, with every try, sometimes you fail . . . sometimes you fly.”
★ “…This charming and engaging celebration of life is a must-read and a must-have. A natural successor to Dr. Seuss’ Oh, the Places You’ll Go! that deals with navigating life’s ups and downs.” —Booklist, starred review
“Exuberant and loving; sure to incite giggles from kids and teary smiles from adults and possibly to unseat Oh, the Places You’ll Go! as a perennial graduation gift.”–Kirkus, review
“With a cast that ranges across the span of childhood, this book seems destined to be given at milestone moments… Reinhardt’s watercolor-and-ink portraits have a marvelous specificity that invites readers to connect more deeply with the diverse characters as they struggle, grow, and “sometimes… fly.” –Publishers Weekly
