Left Bank Books
Left Bank Books welcomes Newbery Medalist and bestselling children's author Katherine Applegate, who will sign and read from her new picture book, Sometimes You Fly!
This gorgeous gift book, equally perfect for preschool graduations or college commencements, baby showers or birthdays, is an inspirational tribute to the universal struggles and achievements of childhood. Beginning with a first birthday, the scenes travel through childhood triumphs and milestones, coming full circle to graduation. A magical blend of succinct text and beautiful watercolors renders each moment with tenderness and humor and encourages readers to “remember then, with every try, sometimes you fail . . . sometimes you fly.”
"This charming and engaging celebration of life is a must-read and a must-have. A natural successor to Dr. Seuss' Oh, the Places You’ll Go! that deals with navigating life’s ups and downs." —Booklist, starred review
