Description

Young readers/listeners will easily empathize as they contemplate daunting firsts of their own and take heart as they discover that pluck and practice win out. Equally appealing are the bright, delightful watercolor illustrations of the very expressive bird. (So saturated are they that the mother’s plumage looks darker than it does in real life.) Two double-page spreads of further information for children and adults extend the story’s usefulness with a child-friendly Q-and-A illustrated with photos and literacy and STEM activities.

Flying with this bird should leave young human chicks feeling encouraged to spread their own wings. (Picture book. 3-6)

— Kirkus Reviews (January 1, 2019)

Children (and parents!) experiencing the many firsts of growing up will relate to this lively story of a young robin learning to fly. The playful rhyming text and winsome water color illustrations give readers a bird’s eye view of the baby birds’ emotions and adventures on its way to solo flight.

— Sue Lowell Gallion, Children’s book author, Pug Meets Pig and Pug & Pig: Trick or Treat

Hang in there, little robin! We all know what it feels like to fail, especially when we’re striving to accomplish a new skill. But if it’s something you really want to do, it’s worth the effort.

— Rudy Darling, President Sierra Foothills Audubon Society (September 2018)

When a fledgling robin decides that it’s time to fly, he discovers that it’s harder than it looks. Written in jaunty rhyme and illustrated in springtime colors, Why Should I Walk? I Can Fly! is perfect for bird-lovers of all ages. Includes back matter about birds and flight.

— Jody Jensen Shaffer, author of children’s picture books including Prudence the Part-Time Cow.

A little bird, a big sky, and the first time out of the nest! A robin’s first flight is a gentle reminder about what we can accomplish if we just keep trying. As reviewer Sue Lowell Gallion says, “Children (and parents!) experiencing the many firsts of growing up will relate to this lively story of a young robin learning to fly. Playful, rhyming text and winsome water color illustrations give readers a birds’ eye view of the baby birds’ emotions and adventures on its way to solo flight.”
