Is a woman’s story about her childhood dream of flying and the messages she wants to leave to her grandchildren. Mimi speaks to her grandchildren about how she dreamed of flying as a child and how she grew up thinking that she could never make her dream come true.
As you read along, you can hear the author speaking to her grandchildren. Mimi wants them to know her as a real person and as a child with dreams, just like them. “My Mimi Has Wings” imparts several lessons and is intended to be a legacy for the author’s grandchildren. Wonderful illustrations by Elizabeth Allen enhance the story and aptly set the scene.
