Little Bird by German Zullo and Albertine

As we kick off the new year, we're drawn to uplifting books – ones that help us teach our kids kindness and compassion. In Little Bird, the beautiful illustrations tell a heartwarming story. A man drives his truck to the edge of a cliff, opens the back door, and watches birds fly out. One timid little bird is left behind. The man befriends the little guy and encourages him to take flight. The bird goes, only to return later with his friends, who pick up the man to fly along with them. The accompanying text reads like a poem, suggesting that the tiny things – the things that often go unnoticed – are life's greatest treasures.
