Where Do Grandpas Fly?

Daniella Carmi

AGE: 3-6

Liora and her Granddad go for a walk in a field of wild daisies. They blow on the silvery clusters and the seeds fly in all directions. Granddad says that when it rains the seeds will sprout and new daisies will grow. Liora asks, “Can we fly too?” and Granddad laughs. The next day, after he picks Liora up from preschool, they both jump gleefully into puddles and splash water everywhere. Just before summer, Granddad gets sick and lies in bed for a long time. At night, Liora dreams that she’s flying and sees Granddad in bed in the middle of the desert, the sun blazing above him. In the morning, she wakes up crying. But in the autumn, Granddad gets better, and the two walk again in the wild daisy field. Granddad walks very slowly, leaning on his cane. Liora asks, “Granddad, where would you like to fly to?” Granddad thinks hard and answers, “To a flower bed in your preschool, to sprout there. And if you can, you will come and water me.”
