Scope for Imagination

Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?

The Fledgling

I am so glad Wendy suggested this book
by Jane Langton,
first published in 1980,
Newberry Honor book,
set in Concord, Massachusetts.

Just that makes it a must read for me.

But do you want to read it?

Here's the Library blurb, "Georgie's fondest hope, to be able to fly, is fleetingly fulfilled when she is befriended by a Canada goose."

It's lovely, lovely. A kid's transcendent journey. Every page inspired by Henry Thoreau. That's what I like about it.

What you might like is feeling like you, too, can fly.
