This gorgeous picture book about gathering courage to face the first day of school will be a favorite of children of all ages and is perfect for fans of Corinna Luyken and Julie Morstad.

May has butterflies in her tummy on the first day of school. She thinks back to other brave days to see if she can find that feeling again. She even tries to hop and skip away her worries. Nothing helps, and May wishes she could simply fly away.

But May's mom reassures her that everyone has worries, and that even the birds and butterflies must first learn how to fly. With a little time, May will feel ready to spread her wings.

Author/illustrator Lucy Morris crafts a beautifully gentle picture book about embracing your worries and finding courage in your own authentic way.
