What's Nerdy Birdy About

Publisher Summary

Nerdy Birdy likes reading, video games, and reading about video games, which immediately disqualifies him for membership in the cool crowd. One thing is clear: being a nerdy birdy is a lonely lifestyle. When he’s at his lowest point, Nerdy Birdy meets a flock just like him. He has friends and discovers that there are far more nerdy birdies than cool birdies in the sky.

This book reminds me of one of my favorite Dumbledore quotes: “It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends.” While initially Nerdy Birdy feels put down and isolated by the “cool” birds who think he’s too nerdy to be around them, he’s overjoyed when a whole group of “Nerdy Birdies” open their wings to him in friendship and bring him into the fold. After all, there’s always room for another Nerdy Birdy! While in my book, the story could have ended there with the lesson that you can always find friends and people like you who will treat you well, this book reaches an entirely different level when Nerdy Birdy learns that his new friends aren’t as inclusive as he thought… in fact… they’re the same as the “cool” birds in that they’ll only be kind to people like them. Nerdy Birdies. Nerdy Birdy knows what it’s like to feel isolated, and so he bravely proffers the wing of friendship to the new vulture who isn’t just like him and that’s ok.
