Product description


'An emotive story about loving yourself, having big dreams and the power of friendship... With sumptuously inky illustrations'

'A powerful story addressing themes of disability, determination and finding different ways to a achieve difficult goals.'

'I love it when a beautiful cover draws me into a book - and this cover is simply gorgeous... Zosienka is the illustrator, who so perfectly conveys the emotion of the book through delicate watercolours; text and illustrations combine to bring a strong message of acceptance, perseverance and friendship'
(Parents in Touch)

'a powerful story about friendship & inclusivity...beautifully addresses themes of disability, determination and finding different ways to achieve difficult goals’ 
(Just Imagine)

'I really loved this, especially the bird because he was so brave!'
(Jack Radford, age 5, for lovereading4kids.co.uk)

'I really liked the pictures of the birds in the book. The Baby Bird is very colourful. Even though he can't do everything his bird brothers and sisters do he is still happy.'
(Abbie Collings, age 5, for lovereading4kids.co.uk)

'Beautiful illustrations. We particularly liked the birds eating the worms and the aerial view of the countryside.'
(mother, for lovereading4kids.co.uk)

'Baby Bird is like Finding Nemo meets a determined little bird... A lovely story that teaches children (and their parents) to keep on trying even when things aren't going well...the beautiful illustrations by Zosienka were mesmerising!'
(mother, for lovereading4kids.co.uk)

'a lovely story with delightful illustrations and the message, gently told, of accepting yourself the way you are, and making adaptions - with help from his friends.'
