About the Book

Jamie is a story about a spunky little sparrow who, after just learning how to fly, embarks on an exciting, but non-violent, adventure that leads to undreamed of experiences. Written in a manner to delight young children, each of the four chapters can be read as a separate bedtime story, revealing, as the narrative unfolds, the basic principles of flight and in so doing vicariously satisfying virtually every young child’s desire to be able to fly. Rated both “Editors’ Choice” and “Readers’ Choice” it is primarily intended to be read to 4 to 7 year olds, though some slightly older children enjoy reading it themselves.
