Publishers Description Love Never Gives Up--
There once was a boy who had a kite. He loved the kite very much. Every day the pair would have a new adventure together. But one day the kite made a terrible decision that changed everything! Could one little kite survive in the world all by itself?
In this tender and triumphant tale, award-winning author and illustrator Steve Björkman paints a subtle but clear portrait of redemption, masterfully capturing the essence of God's redeeming grace.
A story soaring with meaning not only for boys and girls, but for men and women of all ages, The Flyaway Kite offers a high-flying parable of God's love for each one of us--and of our desperate need to be connected to Him.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Flyaway Kite?
what a wonderful story! Oct 19, 2000
This is a gem of a book. It is a beautifully told, gentle story that gives children a clear picture of God's love for them and the lengths to which He will go in pursuing them. My just-turned-5yo daughter easily understood the metaphor and how God's hand on our kite strings is necessary so that can fly and soar instead of crashing to the ground. I highly recommend this book.
