Gideon's Dream: A Tale of New Beginnings

Gideon goes to work high up in the trees, day in and day out. But one day something remarkable happens—the leaf he is working on breaks free of the tree, taking Gideon on its flight. At first Gideon is terrified, but as he glides gracefully through the air, his fear turns into sheer joy. What a rush it is to fly! After he lands, Gideon just can't get the experience out of his head. He dreams of once again soaring through the air and feeling so free. Will Gideon's dreams of flying ever come true, or is it just too late?
Written by some of America's most visionary thinkers, Gideon's Dream is the story of one remarkable transformation. This inspirational tale shows that growth and change are forever a part of life and that it's never too late to follow your dreams.
