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.
