Book review: Fly!, by Karl Newsom Edwards

Edwards, Karl Newsom. Fly! Alfred A, Knopf, 2015. $15.99. ISBN 978-0-385-39283-9. Unp. Ages 1-4. P7 Q8

Edwards FlyThe end papers are beautiful with drawings of different flying insects. The fly is a cartoonish character with cute big bug eyes. He doesn’t know how to fly yet but tries to do what the other insects do and finally flies and they are all so happy. This story has very simple words but a great message of being who you are and embracing one’s talents. The author includes two pages of insect facts at the end of the story.
