ISBN 600313481093. Text: Diane Abdi Robertson, Abraham Koplowicz.

The fact that the text for this work even exists is a miracle. It was written by Abraham ("Abramek") Koplowicz, a Jewish boy who was exterminated by the Nazis during the Holocaust. Abramek was born in 1930 in Lodz, Poland, and died 1944 in that country's infamous concentration camp at Auschwitz-Birkenau. He wrote this poem during the time that his family was trapped in the Lodz ghetto. This poem was not found until 1983 when Eliezer ("Lolek") Grynfeld, the poet's half-brother, discovered it among their late father's belongings. Children who sing this work will be transported on a magical flight around the world through time and space along with their audiences. The edition includes a detailed biography of the poet and pictures from his life. 1. Dream 2. I'll Fly 3. The Peaks of Tibet 4. I Will Flutter 5. Fly, Cruise, Soar!
