A Fly Went By

A fly flees from a frog that’s being chased by a cat that is running from a dog and that’s just the beginning! A Fly Went By is a 50-year-old classic story that builds and builds as a brave little boy tries to find out why everyone is chasing everyone else—and ends with him discovering that it’s all a big misunderstanding! As you read this story aloud, you may wish to soften some of the vocabulary according to today’s times and preferences, or use it as a springboard for discussion with an older child.
