Are you brave enough to be true to yourself? That is the question asked in this poetic, beautifully illustrated picture book. Ikarus Jackson has wings, but he's afraid to fly after kids taunt him. Then an affirmation comes, giving him the courage he needs to be himself. This self-esteem-building book will challenge your child to celebrate individuality -- in himself, and in others. Parents' Guide Children's Media Award-winner.
