Parachute Book CoverToby finds the courage to do all sorts of tricky things when he puts on his parachute right away each morning. From getting out of bed to riding his bike, he is comforted with the pack on his back. One day, Toby’s own fears must be put aside when Henry the cat is stuck high in a tree. Bravely, Toby climbs to the top, lowers the cat safely to the ground, and finds himself returning to the ground parachute-free. This is a powerful and fantastical story about letting go of fears and finding one’s independence. Dreamy, beautiful illustrations portray the world from Toby’s perception. cc
