The Lost Little Bird

David McPhail

Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)


David McPhail's The Lost Little Bird is a funny and affirming picture book about a little bird who goes on an adventure to discover who he is.

When a little bird bumps his head one day, he loses his memory. He can't even remember what kind of bird he is! Determined to find out, he sets off on a great journey. Along the way, he meets many new birds—including some scary crows, an inquisitive owl, and two helpful chickens—but none who are quite like him. Where is his bird of a feather?

Sweet and heartfelt, The Lost Little Bird is a story about accepting yourself as you are.
