Book Review - "Birds Can Fly and So Can I"

Noa Nimrodi's book, "Birds Can Fly and So Can I" is an adorable book with vivid, beautiful illustrations and a great message for children to pursue their dreams and discover new talents.

Giraffe sees some birds flying one day and wishes she could fly as well. In a dream Giraffe flies and spends time with friends and discovers that her long neck can be helpful. When she wakes up it was all a dream, but the pleasant memories are still there and she feels better about herself.

This is a cute rhyming story for children. Children always need to be encouraged to try new things, uncover hidden talents and reach for higher goals. This is a great way to portray these messages to children. This book is a great resource to use with children and I would recommend this book for any counselor working with elementary-aged children. The book ends with a page with a picture of Giraffe with spaces to be filled in by the reader. For example, one spot says "I dream of..." and another is "I will try..." The very last page reads, "Living your dreams is tough to do But Giraffe did it, and so can you Look to the sky, there is no end Burst through the clouds as you ascend." Great message and resource to use with children!

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a honest review.*
