Blue does not want to learn to fly and so he does not. He hitches rides with his friends. His friends leave him. Blue decides he will hitch a ride with an unsuspecting bird but discovers that is not a good idea and he has to save them both. Blue finds out he can do what he fears and it makes him independent.
This is a wonderful book for the little ones. It teaches them it is good to be independent. It also teaches that it is okay to be afraid but to try whatever anyway. Nice illustrations also.
