Born to Fly

The tale of a dream that would not die


Uh-oh.  Blossom is in big trouble. Her grandfather warned her not to go beyond  the village gates. After all, no caterpillar in Twig Valley has ever  ventured there and returned to tell.

For  as long as anyone can remember, no caterpillar has become a butterfly.  In fact, no one thinks about being anything more than a bug that crawls  in the dust of the ground. 

Until Blossom.

Born to Fly is a chapter book about the power of dreaming big—for children and grown-ups who can still think like children.

"My  goal is to inspire kids to dream the dreams that can change the world," says author Diana Scimone.

Born to Fly features 40 illustrations in soft pastel by artist Leah  Wiedemer. Diana and Leah also collaborate on the Adventures With PawPaw  children’s book series.
