Leo was a dragonfly. He lived on an island with other dragonflies just like him. He would do dragonfly things at dragonfly times at dragonfly places, but every day at sunset he would fly out to the shore where he could watch the sea. From his little rock he would watch the birds fly high in the sky, and every day he would envy them and imagine what it was like soaring through the air at such heights and speeds.
The poor little dragonfly went on like this for quite some time until one day he decided that he would fly like the birds, no matter the cost. Of course all of his dragonfly friends and dragonfly family tried to discourage him.
"No!" they would say, "You're much too small and weak to fly like that." But despite their harsh words, Leo remained courageous and focused.
For the next few days he spent his free time buzzing around the island, searching for the highest spot from where he could jump. Day after day he would look on every corner of the island stopping at the highest place
