Fly, Eagle, Fly!
Literature-based Lessons

Fly, Eagle, Fly! Click to buy from Kalahari.netThis inspiring story is regarded as a classic in South African children’s literature.

A farmer finds an eaglet and takes it home to his children and raises it among the chickens. A visiting friend sets out to prove to the farmer that the grown eagle has not forgotten its identity, but can fly as all eagles do. To his dismay, all attempts to get the eagle to fly are in vain, until one morning at dawn…

The story is simple, but the meaning profound. It’s message is one to be pondered by young and old alike, but especially by children, like so many in Africa, who live in less than ideal circumstances…We are all created with potential to soar like eagles…and not just live our lives, scratching in the dirt, like chickens.
