    Paperback Description:

    The story of Lumba, "The Eagle That Would Not Fly" is told through a series of unfortunate events that disrupt his life. He is first taught to fly by his mother along with his brothers and sisters. Their family unit is separated and displaced by nature’s fury. Lumba wakes up in a strange place and has to make adjustments to survive. He grows to love his new farm home and the companions that come with it. As time passes, Lumba is elevated to a position of power among the farm animals. It’s at this point that nature’s fury interrupts his life again and he finds himself separated from the farm and all the companions he had grown to love. Children ages 5 - 10 will enjoy Lumba’s world as he grows and meets his new challenges. The lesson Lumba teaches us is love those who are different from us, which is Gods challenge to all of us. Barbara has spent most of her life teaching and is a retired Professor from the Borough of Manhattan Community College. She attended Morgan State University for her BS degree in Physical Education and Lehman College for her Masters Degree in Education. Most of her career has been spent teaching and directing performances. At a very early age Barbara knew she wanted to dance. She began performing dance with the Bernice Johnson Dancers at the age of 14. Her earliest performances started with Bernice Johnson Dance recitals and TV appearances, on Soul to Soul. Barbara’s love and passion for dance has pursued her though out her life. After retirement she began to study book binding and organized her company Adzua Art Associates. From the company she developed Adzua Book Art. With this third children’s book she has found a way to tell a story using words instead of choreographed steps. Her greatest joy is now found in introducing youth to the world of performance through stories instead of steps.
