Birdplane by Tonya Coffey
Birdplane by Tonya Coffey is the story about a little ant that has dreams of flying. Tiny Tom wants to fly and soar in the air more than anything. And he's willing to do almost anything to take flight. We follow Tiny Tom on his adventure as he tries a series of plans to get himself launched into the air.
My favorite thing about Birdplane (aside from the illustrations) is the determination shown by Tiny Tom to get into the air. Not does Tiny Tom show the determination to do the thing he wants, but he also shows the ingenuity to try several methods and to keep trying until he succeeds.
The illustrations are very nice. They are done on a canvas. They look great, and I think they fit the story well.
