Binkle's Time to Fly – Picture Book Review

Published on: February 4, 2020

In this special story, all Binkle wants to do is fly like a butterfly. He waits for that day as an egg, then as a caterpillar and then in a cocoon. But when he finally emerges from his cocoon, he discovers his wings don’t work properly. Sad and disappointed he hides under a leaf wondering what he can do. Thankfully, he has friends….

Binkle’s Time to Fly is a sweet story focusing on never giving up, the power of friendship, and helping others when they are sad. The illustrations are much like the cover picture with soft, gentle tones of various bright cheerful colors. On a few of the pages there are multiple smaller pictures while the text curves around the shape of picture. When there is a full page picture, the text is always easy to read against the background colors.

Overall, a wonderful book to share with your little one.

Thanks to Netgalley and Flyaway Books for an advanced reader copy and opportunity to provide an honest review.
