Little Bird was born in a tree and she was not aware of her secret destiny in the story My Little Bird by Tavish Lounsbury. She was a flyer and her parents had prepared her to fly. They wanted Little Bird to try to fly instead of sitting around and watching. They asked her to learn the three bird tricks. The first trick taught her to keep her bird body strong. The second trick involved the brain and Little Bird realized that she was far from insane when she used her brain. The last trick was to have a full heart and her parents taught her that there was more to life than flying.
The story is beautiful and teaches life lessons in a wonderful way. It is heartwarming to watch Little Bird embracing all the obstacles that she encounters while starting to fly, and overcoming them using the tricks her parents taught her. The illustrations are adorable and they breathe life into the story. The message in the book makes it perfect for storytelling sessions in classrooms as Little Bird will motivate and encourage children to spread their wings and fly, just like she did. It can be kept at home in one's personal collection as the lessons learned by Little Bird are helpful during the various stages of life. The author’s approach to this relevant topic is original and different and that makes the book appealing to young readers. As the author rightly says, ‘While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.'
