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. "And don't we all need that right now?"


A companion website,
www.borntoflybook.com, has games and activities for kids and a free reading guide/curriculum for schools.


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.
