What do you do with a chance?
What Do You Do With a Chance? By Kobi Yamada is the story of little boy who notices a “chance” come into his life. He reaches out to grab it but stumbles. Feeling embarrassed, he becomes more hesitant as other chances come along. As he watches his chances come and go, he notices that they become fewer and fewer, so he decides that the next time a chance comes along he will find the bravery needed to reach out and grab it. The chance that comes for him next is a big one, he reaches out, grabs on and sets off on a magical journey. He says, “It felt so good to soar, to fly, to be free!” The author does such a great job of leaving the “chance” as an undefined thing—it could be anything. That is an idea behind Chance to Soar, a nonprofit dedicated to giving students of all ages unique chances and helping them be brave enough to take them.
