A classic fable encouraging generosity and individuality, from four-time Caldecott Honor-winner Leo Lionni.

Tico, a little bird born without wings, is one day granted his dearest wish. But the wings he gets are made of gold and his bird friends turn against him. “You think you are better than we are,” they say. What Tico does with his golden feathers—and the important lesson he learns—is a fable that children will take to their hearts.

From the Back Cover:

From master storyteller and artist Leo Lionni, here's the hope-filled tale of a little bird born without wings who is one day granted his dearest wish.

A NOTE TO PARENTS AND TEACHERS

The fun continues after the story is finished! As part of the Dragonfly Difference, we've included two pages of activities inspired by this story. We hope you'll enjoy them with a child after reading this Dragonfly Book.

Dragonfly's Feather Fun

Tico is granted a shimmering pair of golden wings. You can make your own beautiful golden feather with just a few supplies.

You'll need:
-- some old newspapers
-- yellow construction paper
-- scissors
-- glue
-- gold glitter

1. Spread the newspapers over your work area. This could get messy!

2. Have an adult help you cut a long feather shape out of the yellow paper.

3. Carefully cut little slits all along the edges of your feather with an adult's help.

4. Have an adult help you pour a little glue onto your feather. Then carefully sprinkle gold glitter over the glue. Shake off the extra glitter onto the newspapers.

5. Hang your golden feather in a special place for everyone to see!

Dragonfly's Helping Hand

You may not have golden wings, but you can still help other people! You might:
-- Clean your room without being asked.
-- Draw a picture for someone who lives far away.
-- Tell a story to a younger sibling or friend.
-- Ask an adult to help you collect cans or newspapers for recycling.

Dragonfly Dreams

The wishingbird in this story gives Tico golden wings. Imagine that the wishingbird granted you one wish. What would you wish for? Why? On a separate piece of paper, draw a picture of your wish coming true. Then think about ways you can try to help make it happen!

From the Inside Flap:

wingless bird wants is a pair of golden wings to carry him up over the mountaintops. But when Tico's wish is granted, none of his friends will talk to him. What's so wrong with being different? Tico wonders all alone. One day Tico helps a crying man by giving him one of his golden feathers. A black feather appears in its place. Each day he gives a feather away to someone in need until his golden wings are as black as India ink. When Tico returns to his friends, they are all relieved to see him. "Now you are just like us," they say. But Tico knows there is more to him than the color of his wings.
