I want to share a nice story I read, this is about a little balloon’s first great adventure. At first, contented in life and daydreaming, unexpectedly flying free, finding friendship in the strangest place, conquering fears and finding courage to follow his dreams.
The story of the little blue balloon goes something like this…
Once…there was a little blue balloon who lived at a fair.
We’ll call him…Blue.
A happy little fellow, his only worry was that of the wind. He had seen it do many awful things. Knocking over garbage cans, stealing hats and sometimes…carrying off helpless balloons!
One night while gazing up at the stars…he wondered what lay beyond the fair.
In that one tiny moment…the thought became a wish.
Drifting off to sleep, he dreamt of a wondrous far away land. He awoke to a terrible discovery…the wind had carried him off in the night! He was lost!
Blue was now embarking on his first great adventure, braving flocks of wild geese, kite filled skies, perilous freeways and raging storms!
Let yourself be whisked away with Blue as he explores strange new lands, finds new friendships…and follows his dreams.
This is really a good story, this gives your child a chance to practice their imagination as you read them the story of BLUE. Not only that, at the back of the book you can find a lot of spaces for your little kids to use in writing and coloring. A nice story book and an activity book as well. I know my Little Zoie will definitely love this book… she loves books and she loves hearing stories!
