My son loved reading this aloud to me. The storyline is engaging for an early reader. It also sparked my son’s interest in birds, and he got excited to learn more about the birds he was hearing about in the book.

We love this book, and it’s one that gets read repeatedly. My first grader appreciates that he can read it independently and that Josh is a boy he can relate to. As a parent, I appreciate the positive relationships modeled, the valuable messages conveyed, and that the writing is good, not sappy.

My kids loved listening to this story. I love the lessons it teaches about working and saving for a pet bird. It also teaches about serving others. Now my kids want a pet bird!

Such a sweet story!

I got this book because I love birds. It has such good messages about serving others and working hard to achieve your goals. My younger sister has read this book over and over again. ~Kathryn (age 11)

Josh wishes he could fly with the birds, but getting his very own bird would be pretty great too! Mom says he can have one if he learns how to take care of birds, and if he earns the money to buy it himself. Josh learns all he can about birds, works hard at his chores, and becomes even better friends with his neighbors, all the while preparing to welcome his new bird home.
