The hero of A FUNNY LITTLE BIRD may feel he goes unnoticed, but he'll capture the attention of little ones in this visually arresting picture book. The striking illustrations by first-time author Jennifer Yerkes, a graphic artist, are both elegant and charming.
Sparse text allows the pictures to tell the story, which proves to be a fable about the importance of connecting with others rather than trying to control the spotlight. It's a terrific book for cuddling up and reading together, so both adult readers and their young listeners can enjoy the artwork. Kids will delight in finding the camouflaged bird on each spread.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
