Once upon a time…

Little Bird has broken her wing and can’t join her friends in flying south for the winter. Cold and unsure where to find shelter, Little Bird hears kind voices calling to her — they offer shelter, food, and even a place for her to sing to her heart’s content! 

Illustrator Maja Andersen has beautifully crafted the images in this book to draw young children into the story and capture their imaginations. The tale of Little Bird introduces children to a lesser-known folktale and teaches them how to care for others.
