The Year We Learned to Fly

Reviewed By: 

This companion to Jacqueline Woodson and Rafael Lopez’s beautiful picture book, The Day You Begin, follows a sister and brother through each of the four seasons as they face different challenges and obstacles. Dazzling and detailed illustrations show the siblings as they follow their grandmother’s advice to leave their anger and boredom behind and take a trip outside of their minds. An uplifting book about nurturing our strength, resilience, and imagination—just right for the 2022 new year.
