I found this hard to read with my children, but great for them to read on their own... because there are really no words! The pictures are bright & bold. They're done comic book style, which is really neat, so the children can pick-up and tell the story on their own as they go along. It also really touches home on how children feel when they're afraid. My toddlers enjoyed reading this to each other!

Baby bird has an active imagination that prevents him from leaving the nest and flying. However, Mama Bird is firm in her ways and pushes him to fly with one word, "Nope!". After a loving cuddle, Mama Bird flings him out of the nest. Cute story that parents can relate to and kids with fear issues might enjoy too.

It's time for baby bird to learn how to fly! Or at least, that's what mommy bird thinks. Baby bird looks down and has other feelings... Nope!

This fun, mostly wordless picture book is great for talking about conquering fears, families and growing up.
