Book Title: Ann Can Fly

Author: Fred Phleger

Book Description:

I received a copy of this book as a gift during an extended illness when I was seven years old. Beginner Books were a fresh concept in early education that year; the story piqued my interest and I was able to read it without assistance. The principal character shared my name and she was active, adventuresome, curious and capable. I wanted to be like her. As a young girl there were many countervailing influences but I always had Ann. I believed her when she said, "Some day you will fly. You will like it, you will see."
