How the Bunny Learned to Fly is an educational children's story book written by Sean David Maday and illustrated by Paisley Paige Press. In this tale of two oddly-suited friends, who both care for each other and share their experiences, Maday uses vocabulary that may be unfamiliar to young readers, and he includes a useful glossary in the back of the book. Readers will also discover a musical score and accompanying lyrics for an original song based on this book preceding the Word and Phrase Glossary. Bunny and his best friend, Robin, might seem to be an unlikely duo, but they have marvelous times playing, cavorting and telling each other stories. While Robin flew overhead and glided on air currents, Bunny would nimbly jump over rocks and obstacles with ease. One day, Bunny wondered aloud what it would be like if he could fly like his friend, Robin. It seemed like so much fun. And after some careful consideration of his friend's desire, Robin figured out a way to help Bunny experience flight.

Sean David Maday's educational children's picture book, How the Bunny Learned to Fly, is a charming and enchanted tale about two best friends and how those friends care for each other. The illustrations are joyful and brilliantly colored, and the expressions on Bunny and Robin's faces reveal their sheer delight in being best friends. Each panel works perfectly with the storyline and shows both Bunny’s pleasure at soaring through the air and his dismay when he notices how hard it is for Robin to function on the ground. The vocabulary challenges Maday includes within the book are thoughtful and designed to expand a young reader's vocabulary without the need to resort to rote memorization and drills. The original musical score and lyrics are quite a nice touch as well. How the Bunny Learned to Fly is most highly recommended.
