Jonathan Livingston Seagull

Jonathan Livingston Seagull


I read this book in 20 minutes!  Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull is the famous story of the seagull who wanted to fly faster and better than all the others.  He felt there had to be more to life than continuously searching for food.  So he began to train himself, and learned how to control his wings and feathers.  But because he has disobeyed The Flock, he becomes an Outcast, and must leave. 

However, Jonathan finds his higher purpose and so reaches transcendence.  Later, he decides to return to teach others in the his Flock who also feel that there is more to life than the search for food.  This book had a good, if simple, message.  Follow your dreams and you will reach a higher being.  A quick read, but very basic.

    I read this book in elementary school… ended up checking it out multiple times. I think the basic message is very inspirational and would make a great shared reading with older children.
