Little Bluebird: A Hero in Me and in You is an educational children’s story by Erin Murphy Welch. The story starts with the usual day in Emmi Bluebird’s life. The world has changed a bit over the past year. A virus that could harm the weak and the old has spread, so everyone has to make adjustments in their daily lives to be safe from this virus called Covid-19 (Coronavirus). Emmi and her friends have to wear a mask and follow important rules to keep themselves healthy. For the sake of other people, Emmi is willing to do as much as she can to prevent the virus from spreading further. Join Emmi Bluebird as she and her friends brave the pandemic by adapting to the challenges the virus brings to the world!
Emmi Bluebird is a brave and kind character who understands the importance of following the rules to ensure the safety of those around her. In Little Bluebird: A Hero in Me and in You, she gives an important rundown of the things to be done for everyone to stay healthy during this crisis. A few examples are wearing masks, social distancing, and washing hands. Erin Murphy Welch frames these important safety procedures in such a simple and fun way, with colorful illustrations to match! By doing it this way, it makes it easier to remember such important instructions and more enjoyable to follow them. I truly feel like I am doing my part in keeping people safe when I take the necessary precautions written in the book.
Another thing I love about this book is the definition of the highlighted terms at the end. It would be helpful for young readers because it will enable them to understand and learn new words while reading such a wonderful story! Overall, I find this book to be charming and interesting to read. Emmi Bluebird and her friends are doing all they can to defend their loved ones and battle these germs by taking care of themselves. They have taught me the importance of how even our smallest actions can have a great, big impact. By keeping safe, healthy, and following the rules of safety, we too can be heroes!
