My 10 yo daughter read this book several weeks ago. Her favorite part of this story was the generosity of the main character in giving up something she loved to someone in need. I love that this message touched her heart! I thought the story was sweet and enjoyable to read with a positive message.
This is a delightful book about a girl who learns about letting go of a prized position to bring someone else happiness. My 11 year old girl said, “It was a great story that was fun to read.”
Sweet little French girl Jeanne-Marie thinks canaries are the most beautiful birds in the whole world–and that Poli is the most beautiful canary with the prettiest song she has ever heard. Having a canary for her very own is within her grasp as she stays with her Aunt Sophie while her parents are away…that is, until Jeanne-Marie makes a big mistake. Follow Jeanne-Marie’s adventure as she leaves her little town to spend a summer and a winter on her grandparent’s farm. This book is full of mishaps and forgiveness, kindness and caring, and through it all–a mystery. For where has Poli gone? Even as weeks pass by, Jeanne-Marie never gives up hope of finding her golden bird, but eventually she surprises even herself with her generous and kind spirit.
