When You Need Wings

On a day when you feel/ like no one is listening,/ and you wish you could just disappear,/ shut your eyes and listen/ Do you hear it?/ That isn't your heart./ That is the sound of your very own wings/ beating within.

It's the first day of preschool for this little girl, and it feels like the scariest day ever. But when she closes her eyes, she finds the courage she needs, thanks to a dream-like journey with "bravehearted" animal friends — who end up being parallels to the human friends she finds in her new classroom.

Acclaimed author-illustrator Lita Judge takes readers on a wonder-filled exploration of a child's imagination, thoughtfully weaving in a gentle suggestion of how to explore that bountiful inner world and let it help them shine with courage in the real one.
