I have a wonderful book to share with you today. NOPE! - A Tale of First Flight by Drew Sheneman is a book of little words that uses amazing illustrations to tell the story of a little birds first flight. The baby is determined not to take that first flight and is scared of all that could happen. This hysterical look at little ones learning to fly can be used to help our kids when they are facing something new such as going to school for the first time.
I love that the story is told in pictures because sitting with my kindergartener and letting him tell me what is happening in his own words is just a fun way to get some creative thoughts out of him. This is a great tool to use to get him thinking and a wonderful activity for creative writing. I won't give away the ending but it is a bit funny how the little one ends up taking his first flight. This book will put a smile on your face as you share it with your child.
NOPE! is a quite literal “leaving the nest” story which may remind some parents of when their child first started school or spent their first night away from home. The relatability of this amusing story makes it perfect for multiple occasions – from back to school, graduations, Mother’s Day, and more.
