Your child gets to learn direction and help navigate the White Feather Flier with directions like point it down into the water or up in the air. With the White Feather Flier our to save the world, mini missions help save our resources and save the environment to be enjoyed by future generations.
Touch the Earth is recommended for children ages 3-6. When Julian Lennon was young, he was given a white feather from his father that served as inspiration for this picture book.
