Synopsis

Synopsis

A little bird waiting in his nest for his mother to bring back food is blown into the sky, nest and all, by a great wind. Will he be able to fly?

Autumn is coming, and George sits in his little nest, not quite ready to learn to fly even though his mom says it is time to head south for the winter. But when a gust of wind swoops George and his nest out of the tree and onto the roof of a car, George is off whether he likes it or not! With his mom following along chirping encouragement, George must gain the confidence to fly before his nest blows away entirely. This charming picture book gently nudges little fledglings everywhere to try out their wings.

Whether a reminder to parents of children's competence or an encouragement for late bloomers, this one will be a favorite for families facing the many stages of independence, from the first day of kindergarten to the empty nest.
—The Horn Book

Full of detail and heart, the illustrations bring the story to life. This spare book is beautifully designed from its charming endpapers to the climactic and satisfying final spread
