If I Never Forever Endeavor

If I Never Forever Endeavor by Holly Meade is a picture book about a bird debating whether to make the endeavor of flying out of his nest.  The bird talks about not failing and being comfortable in his nest, but also about not knowing if he could succeed in flying and missing out on exploring the world.  Eventually the bird decides to try to fly and he succeeds.  This is a great book for students to see that it is okay to be nervous and scared to try new things, but that staying in a comfort zone might mean missing out on something great.  A writing activity that would work well with If I Never Forever Endeavor is to have students write about something they wish to do, but are scared to try.  According to Flesch-Kincaid readability level, If I Never Forever Endeavor is a reading level of 2.7 (2nd to 3rd grade).
