Angela Dominguez is a picture book worth sharing with your children or students. Hugo is a bird who lives in Paris. He is afraid of flying, so when he meets a new friend, Lulu, who invites him to fly so he can see the Eiffel Tower, he creates excuses for why they cannot leave immediately. He procrastinates all day and when Lulu leaves at the end of the day, Hugo wonders what will happen. Bernard, an owl, teaches and encourages Hugo. When Lulu returns in the morning, Hugo is ready to go. I enjoyed the story as well as the pictures. Dominguez' work will be something I will keep a look out for when I am browsing children's books.
