Happy Perfect Picture Book Friday, dear friends. You are in for a treat today! Our book is beautiful, inside and out. And so is our debut picture book author, Sita Singh, who is generously offering a copy of BIRDS OF A FEATHER as a giveaway.
BIRDS OF A FEATHER
Written by Sita Singh
Illustrated by Stephanie Fizer Coleman
Published by Philomel Books (March 2, 2021)
Themes: Diversity, courage, self-worth
Synopsis: From Amazon:
Differences are gorgeously illustrated in a heartwarming picture book about a colorless peacock who learns to love himself in a jungle full of color.
Mo has always felt a little different. While all the other peacocks grew bright, bold, beautiful feathers in rich greens and vibrant blues, Mo’s feathers grew in a snowy white. And even though Mo’s friends try to include him in their playtime, Mo doesn’t like to be reminded that he’s different from his friends. But when a storm threatens to ruin the group’s annual celebration, Mo must learn to stand tall, strut his stuff, and shake his brilliantly glowing tail feathers–in a way only he can–to help his friends and set things right.
From debut author Sita Singh, and brought to life by Stephanie Fizer Coleman, comes a story about finding strength in the things that make us different, and beauty in all its forms.
Why I love this book:
- Vibrant illustrations put us right in the setting.
- Text is filled with heart and humor.
- I love stories that empower kids to be true to themselves.
