Children and adults alike will get carried away on Little Wing’s journey home!
As a parent, you want to see your kids hit their milestones and walking is a big one! However, children usually go from walking to running in nanoseconds and you soon realize that maybe those non-walking days weren’t so bad after all! You have to teach your child the rules in how to behave and where they go and you have to keep a watchful eye on them for years! It gets so much easier the older they get, but it also gets different. It goes from hoping they don’t sprint away from you in the store, to hoping they are safe riding the school bus, to eventually hoping they are not doing anything dangerous as teenagers into the twenties and beyond. Little Wing is a perfect coming-of-age story of a small dragon who wants to learn how to fly and his mother who wants him to learn the rules about flying.
Little Wing is trying SO HARD to learn to fly, but he always finds himself, flip, flap, flopping to the ground. UNTIL – one magical day, Little Wing starts fluttering higher and higher into the sky. That’s when Little Wing’s mom tells him he has to learn the THREE rules of flying. Don’t fly so high, don’t fly so far, and don’t fly without MOM. However, Little Wing’s newfound ability to fly has made him not hear a single word as he goes soaring into the sky and a gust of wind takes him into unknown territories. He’s lost! Little Wing wants his mom! Luckily, mom is able to track Little Wing easily and again goes over the three rules of flying. This time Little Wing promises to follow them, and dragons always keep their promises! Little Wing and his mom are flip, flap, fearless flyers in the sky. Fans of Finding Nemo and Giraffes Can’t Dance will love rooting for Little Wing as the little dragon that could.
