Baby Bird by Andrew Gibbs - ADVISABLE

Baby Bird by Andrew Gibbs, illustrated by Zosienka. PICTURE BOOK. Francis Lincoln Children's Books, 2018. $18. 9781786035912.



Baby Bird is a bit different from his brothers and sisters in that he has one wing that's smaller and a bit crippled. When it comes time to fly, he can't seem to make it work. Upon hitting the ground, Baby Bird meets a very different bird who who helps him embrace his differences and find his own way of flying.

I liked the general message of this story about diversity and achieving our dreams in our own unique way. The story felt a little long for what it was and didn't do a great job keeping my kids' attention. I think this is a book that could be utilized well in a classroom setting, however, in teaching citizenship skills/individuality/etc.
