"Cordelia could fly along with the breeze. What seemed impossible, she did with ease." So begins the tale of Cordelia, a little girl who can fly. She has so much fun singing with the birds and making the moon grin - until other people tell her she's being silly and can't fly.
Cordelia begins to doubt herself, and away goes her ability to fly. Life loses its fun and color until she realizes she knows herself better than that, and that she can't be defined by what other people think. "Who was anyone to say, if she could or couldn't fly? What was or wasn't possible - if they didn't even try?"
This is such a sweet story, written by the wonderful Michelle Nelson-Schmidt. Of course, it shares an important message for kids - and adults - to hear, but it does so with whimsy and innocence. You can't help but root for Cordelia, droop when she's down, smile when she flies.
And, as an added bonus, you can buy a little plush Cordelia doll to make her come alive even more. She is very cute and huggable, and perfectly sized for little arms!
