Kids who have moments of panic can take heart with this lovely little book, with its encouraging message, poetic language, and unique artwork. The lesson here is that with time, and a little friendly support, we all can soar to heights we never imagined.

The story reads like a whimsical poem, and looks like one, too. Words are artistically arranged amid subtle fall-like colors of the collage illustrations that are laid out on graph paper pages. It truly is a "celebration of the friends who help us take the leap."

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
