This is the story of Chic L. Dee, a boy bird with learning disabilities, who flip-flops when he tries to fly. While he struggles to accept his limitations, he begins to discover his talents, trust his intuition and find his own way. Perhaps most importantly, he learns about making room for differences. Any kid who has ever felt embarrassed socially, who has ever resorted to bravado in the face of shame, will understand Chic–and love this story. The fully narrated (with original music) audio-cassette tape that accompanies this book makes it accessible to non-readers.
