With good messages abounding, this read joins a little bird as it takes the steps toward learning to fly.

Little Bird enjoys its nest but wants to fly. Unfortunately, its wings aren't strong or big enough to carry it, yet. The parents encourage the Little Bird with healthy foods, and friends do fun exercises to help Little Bird built its muscles. But if all of this will help in the end?

It's easy to understand Little Bird's desire to want to fly and no problem to sympathize with the cute creature when it discovers it's still to small. While the parents do their part and offer warmth and care, none of this is as fun as when the friends step in. At this point, the story hitches up a notch in fun. Little Bird does a dance and exercises, which young listeners/readers can join in with themselves. This sneakily also practices those counting skills. When all of this is done, the book also ends on a fun, last note.

It's a straight-forward read, geared especially for Christians, and is simple in the set-up and illustrations. It makes a lovely read-aloud and gets kids involved, which is always a plus.
