Just in time for Valentine’s Day, comes Bird Hugs.Bernard isn’t like other birds. His wings are impossibly long, and try as he might, he just can’t seem to fly. He’s left wondering what his wings are good for…if they’re even good for anything at all. But a chance encounter with a dejected orangutan leads Bernard to a surprising discovery: that maybe what makes him different is actually something to be embraced.
Praise for Bird Hugs:
“Readers will agree: All differences should be hugged, er, embraced.” —Kirkus Reviews
“The lesson is a simple, familiar one—selflessness and sympathy are key to making friends—but Adamson’s gentle humor and his eager-eyed characters’ yearning become an eloquent testimony to the power of a little TLC.” —Publishers Weekly
My review of Bird Hugs
Bird Hugs is a sweet children’s book with an important message…we’ve all got something special to share. We don’t have to be like everyone else. Bernard is a bird who can’t fly because he’s got such long wings. Though he tries and tries, he just can’t do it! Of course, this makes Bernard very sad. All of his friends can fly, and all he can do is sit around. At least that’s what he thinks!
Then one day, he hears someone crying and knows that he needs a hug. Bernard’s hug makes him feel better. Soon, lots of animals are coming to Bernard for his hugs. They talk to him and tell him why they’re sad. Bernard listens and gives them all big hugs because that’s what he’s good at.
This is a great book to share with your little ones. Even if we’re not good at what our friends are good at, we have something to offer others. There’s something that makes us special. The illustrations in the book are wonderful and bring the story to life. You and your kids will love Bird Hugs.
