Mom's Choice Award for Children's Picture Books and Bedtime Stories--Gold

Oh, no! Jake's favorite blanket gets carried off with the wind and flies away.Does it wander far? Where does it go? Will it be missing forever?

Take a peek at this sweet tale about a cherished blanket and that loving bond shared by a parent and child. A Note to Parents is included.

From the Note to Parents:

At its heart, The Flyaway Blanket is a simple story about the strength of the bonds between parents and their children. Often, children have a favorite blanket or soft toy they cuddle at night and carry with them everywhere. These transitional or comfort objects have been shown to play an important role in helping children to explore the world and become more independent as they grow toward adolescence. Transitional objects symbolize a parent's love and become a familiar presence that allows children to soothe themselves in new situations or when they feel alone or insecure. Every well-worn blanket becomes a treasure that is irreplaceable, and each has a unique story composed over time by the boy or girl who loves it.

In this charmingly illustrated story, a child's favorite blanket is picked up by the wind and carried away. The blanket flies through the neighborhood and passes many different animal mothers and babies, eventually returning to its original owner to be cherished and loved.
