Bertie the birdie knows: he’s ready to fly from the nest and into the sky. But whenever he’s about to take wing, his fellow feathered friends squawk at him to STOP and follow their advice instead. But not one of these “experts”—the persuasive penguin, the emu, or the kiwi—has ever actually flown! Will Bertie learn to trust his own instincts . . . and soar?
Sometimes we have to stop listening to the critics (especially those that can’t fly) and trust in ourselves and the voice inside our heads telling us that we can do it.
The illustrations and details in this book are so fun! Even though Bertie keeps being told he can’t fly, in the end he learns to trust his instincts and not let what others think of him matter.
