Alison's Wings

by Marion Dane Bauer
Illustrated by Roger Roth

Published by Hyperion, 1996
47 pages
ISBN: 0-7868-0105-0

Ages 4 - 7

Although Alison dreams she has wings, she can't see them in the morning. Her brother reminds her that girls don't have wings; airplanes do, but never girls. Her mom chimes in to tell her about birds having wings. Her dad even claims that angels have wings. Alison decides she'll be the first girl with wings. Girl wings. And she is. Bauer's very easy chapter book is illustrated with Roth's black-and-white pencil drawings and has lots of white space between its short sentences and large size typeface. New readers will fly through this optimistic story. (Hyperion Chapters: Second Grade) CCBC categories: Easy Fiction.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
