The Year We Learned To Fly

By Jacqueline Woodson

Illustrated by Rafael Lopez

"A must have book about the power of one's voice and the friendships that emerge when you are yourself" -Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"On a dreary, stuck-inside kind of day, a brother and sister heed their grandmothers advice: "Use those beautiful and brilliant minds of yours. Lift your arms, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and believe in a thing. Somebody somewhere at some point was just as bored as you are now" And before they know it, their imaginations lift them up and out of their boredom. Then, on a day full of quarrels, they follow Grandmother's advice and find theyre able to leave their anger behind. This precious skill, their frandmother tells them, harkens back to days long before they were born, when their ancestors showed the world the strength and resilience of their beautiful and brilliant minds."
