Touch the Sky

Illustrated by Chris Park

A story for every child on the cusp of learning something new who just needs an extra push to get there.

Vern longed to be one of the kids who swooped until their toes touched the sky. He heads to the swings and desperately tries to pump his legs, but he just can't get it.


A chance encounter with precocious (and hilarious) Gretchen gives him just what he needs to know, and he finally learns to soar.
