You Can Fly, Little Bird 

In You Can Fly, Little Bird author Tuula Pere envisions three newborn bird hatchlings facing the new world where they are born. The first two hatchlings are eager and strong, ready to take on the world. The third baby bird to be born is incredibly timid and cautious. She longs to have the courage to leave the nest and explore her large home forest. Serene is the youngest of three bird siblings. Unlike her older sister and brother, who eagerly take on flying to explore areas further away from their woods, wary Serene can hardly believe she will ever be able to do such a thing and is content with the forest around her.

Tuula Pere is a master of disguising beautiful and profound messages in simple stories that are relatable to children of all ages; her work in You Can Fly, Little Bird is no different. She tells her story of a bird family in a way that children can see themselves as one of the baby birds, either the bold, adventurous type or the more reserved and pondering type. Learning that both kinds of people have value and their own unique skills is a great message for children.

The illustrations by Alexandra Burda are done in fine line artwork and with wholesome characteristics that give the scenery and characters a homely feel. The colors and style fit perfectly with the story’s message, with dramatic images for the two brave siblings and more clam for Serene. The protagonist is a character to whom all readers could relate. Everyone is bound to experience a situation or area of life where they underperform or struggle harder than their peers.

You Can Fly, Little Bird is a whimsical tale about self-confidence and growing at your own pace. The artwork and the story combine to make an enjoyable read for children and adults. Teachers and caregivers will find this captivating children’s book a great addition to their libraries.
