Little Leap Forward

Little Leap Forward is growing up in Beijing during the Cultural Revolution in China. His songbird, Little Cloud, lives in a bamboo cage in Little Leap’s courtyard. But she does not sing as she used to before she was captured. His friend asks, “Wouldn’t you rather be free, just for a day, than spend a lifetime in a cage?”
