A Bird Like Himself

Publisher: Tiny Owl

One day, a fat little chick hatches from an egg. The animals try their best to look after him, but they're not quite sure what to do. The chick grows and grows but never knows where he belongs. Sometimes he baas like a sheep, other times he moos like a cow.

The animals are worried because winter is coming and the chick must fly south to keep warm. But cows and sheep and snakes and elephants can't teach him how to fly. Out of the blue, another bird appears. It flaps its wings and soars into the sky. Without thinking, the chick follows and they head south together.

A charming book about growing up, fitting in and finding your own wings. Engaging, funny illustrations enhance the simple text in a story that will delight young readers.
