Perfect Picture Book Friday: BIRDS OF A FEATHER Plus Giveaway

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.


Written by Sita Singh

Illustrated by Stephanie Fizer Coleman

Published by Philomel Books (March 2, 2021)

Ages: 4-8

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:

  1. Vibrant illustrations put us right in the setting.
  2. Text is filled with heart and humor.
  3. I love stories that empower kids to be true to themselves.

  1. Peacocks are fun! We moved into a house where the lady before us had peacocks and decorated accordingly. We had peacock blue refrigerator, bathtub, and washing machine. Pretty amazing! Can’t wait to see this book!


  2. This book is beautiful, and those peacock crafts are adorable! I think I’m going to have to plan a peacock themed story time for our library. 🙂
