I LOVED this picture book!!

I am so glad I didn't look at the reviews before buying this book. I might not have bought it. But I'm so glad I did. I write books for children and young adults and am traditionally published. So when I say I wish I had written something so beautiful, I hope it means something to anyone thinking about buying this book. The language is spare and the illustrations capture the words so perfectly yet add something to it too. All of it is brilliant and brought so much pleasure to me reading it. I think it would make a lovely gift for any occasion and would be an excellent addition to any library. As for the comparison to Dr. Seuss, I agree with Booklist in that SOMETIMES YOU FLY is a natural successor to OH, THE PLACES YOU"LL GO which I gave to each of my kids upon 5th grade graduation.
