In this book Little Dan wants to fly. His mother tells him birds fly, but not humans. Little Dan tries jumping off the porch and a stump to fly. All to no avail. (In her book, Going Rogue, Sarah Palin writes about being a little girl in Skagway, Alaska, and trying to fly jumps off the sidewalk--and lands smack onto the ground. Little Dan is probably like many children in trying to see if one can take flight.)
But on his birthday grandpa says he knows Little Dan wants to fly. And grandpa says he has the gift that will allow that to happen. Will a flying hat, flying suit, and flying goggles enable Little Dan to fly?
Children will enjoy reading the 205 words in this delightful tale.
