The Flyaway Blanket

Publisher: Magination Press

Review

It’s a windy day so Jake and Momma are hanging out the laundry. Jake is reluctant to leave his favourite blanket on the washing line, so they sit down on the grass to wait for it to dry. As mother and son doze in the sunshine, a gust of wind carries the blanket up into the sky. The blow-away blanket has quite an adventure, meeting several young animals and baby birds on its travels. When the wind changes direction, it flutters back home and a kind mother bird guides it down to land on sleeping Jake.

Soft pastel illustrations accompany this gentle tale about a much-loved comfort blanket, a symbol of the reassuringly protective relationship between parent and child.
