As a young girl sits at her desk at school, and everywhere else she ever is, her mind is in imagination mode. In simple yet meaningful poetry, Words with Wings explores Gabby’s life, a young girl who daydreams her days away. Throughout the story, one of Gabby’s teachers helps her turn her wild imagination into words on the page. Words with Wings is a great read for emerging readers who enjoy reading poetry, manipulation of language, or who may just be that imaginative child needing their own encouragement to turn their thoughts into words on the page.
