If I Never Forever Endeavor by Holly Meade- OPTIONAL

Meade, Holly. If I Never Forever Endeavor, 32 pages. Candlewick, 2011. $15.99. PICTURE BOOK.  Content, G. 
“Safe inside his cozy nest, a young bird considers whether or not to give his new wings a try.  Wings might take him swooping and gliding, sailing and flying, through a great big, wonderful world.  But what if he tries and the wings don’t work?  What then? 
This book is about making decision, and the internal debate that accompanies it.”  The collage illustrations are inviting and beautiful.  The story line could be a sounding board for discussions about emotions, decisions, and failure or success.  
EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL.  Reviewer:  SL.
