I've just returned from a week of visiting my older sister, niece and nephew in Chicago and what a time it was-- keeping up with an active 4 year old and baby is exhausting. But fun! One of the many things we did was go to a kite festival.
This was especially heartwarming for me due to the obvious connection to my book, Kite-Flying. That book was inspired by my own childhood memories of flying kites; it was a lovely circle to experience it again, this time as an adult watching a child enjoy it for the first time.
Because with the wind blowing, we made the kite,
decorated it (that is a drawing of a bird, by the way)
and then flew it in the sky.
It joined the rest of the kites--talking to the wind,
just like the book!
