My Thoughts:

I liked this children’s book about this little fish that wanted to fly. Joel was different from all his fish buddies in that he had a dream. He worked hard every day to accomplish his heart’s desire. It didn’t matter to him that he wasn’t like all the other fish.

I liked that I Will Fly teaches that it’s okay to be different. We don’t need to be the same as everyone else. There is nothing wrong with having different goals and dreams than other people. Even if others scoff at you and say you will never reach your goal, it’s important to keep working towards it. You may surprise them 

and yourself when you do. (And even if you don’t, you’ll learn important lessons on the way.)

I enjoyed the illustrations in the book as well. They were a unique composite of photographs, ink drawings and watercolour. I think children will enjoy the colourful pictures immensely.

I Will Fly is published in both. The translation to English was well. There were no issues with the English grammar.

There was a link in the book that was supposed to take you to some free colouring pages published on Facebook, but clicking the link did not take you there. (I only ended up on my own Facebook page.) Mr. Ezra has a Facebook page, but I did not include the link as it is a personal page and there are no colouring pages on it.

I Will Fly: The Green Fin Fish Story is a delightful tale with a wonderful lesson about being different and working towards your goals. I would highly recommend this book for children ages 3 – 8. I gave this book 5 stars out of 5.

Thank you to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
