Nicole Meldahl will read classic and history-themed children’s stories live the first Wednesday of every month. We began this series on Facebook Live in May and, after a month off, are shifting to Zoom! Fun for kids of all ages, even if you’re just a kid at heart. This month we’re reading a 1950s classic: “Fly High, Fly Low” by Don Freeman, recommended for ages 3-5.
Sid the pigeon is very choosy about finding just the right home in the magnificent city of San Francisco. And find it he does, in the loop of a huge “B” in an electric sign high up on a skyscraper. Sid’s view of San Francisco is without equal. So Sid asks the lovely dove Midge to share his home. But one morning, while Midge is taking her turn sitting on two eggs, disaster strikes. A truck comes and workers take down the letters on the skyscraper one-by-one. Winner of the Caldecott Honor, “Fly High, Fly Low” is a heartwarming story of two birds making a home—and then making another one—in one of America’s great cities.
