Overview

Readers young and old will be moved by this fable about the red-winged blackbird, vanity, and the power of a single act of kindness that changes the blackbird's feathers forever 

In this modern fable, a blackbird yearns for more beautiful feathers, but ends up with a broken wing while flying toward the sun in search of beauty. While many pass by the injured bird, a young boy takes him into his home and heals him until the bird is able to fly back to his family. The selfless actions of the boy teach the blackbird—and young readers—an important lesson about kindness and the healing power of love.
