Amazon Description

Billy is nervous about starting school, but as he cares for a baby sparrow that eventually learns to fly on its own, he realizes that he too can look after himself. By the creators of The Big Book of Families.

One Potato Review

After fourteen years still the brightest in a pretty pale field. Too often books about the first day of school settle for coaching. This title may be bland, but there’s a lot to look at here - not least the panoramic landscapes. Birds feature beautifully, and there isn’t a cynical hook in the plot. Calm and thoughtful, without presuming on our fears. For many ages.
