Book Review & Giveaway: Blue the Bird on Flying by Becky Due.

Blue the Bird on Flying by Becky Due

A note for parents – Blue the Bird, On Flying is a lesson in independence and self-esteem designed to help teach your child shapes and colors. The author, Becky Due, is donating a percentage of book sales to Children of the Night, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to assisting children who are forced into prostitution.

My Review: Blue is a bird that didn’t want to fly. Blue will fly on the backs of his friends. When they could no longer carry Blue because it wasn’t fun they left Blue and flew with other friends who can fly. Want to know if Blue ever flew then buy the book.

I love this book because not only is it educational, it teaches children about shapes and colors. It also will help children to overcome their fear, the importance of being independent and self-esteem.  Every child will enjoy reading this book because of its bold text and colors. I highly recommend this book for classroom teaching.

Ages: 4-8

Hardcover: 38

  3. I love the basic message of this book. My little guy is pretty bold, but there are times when he slides back into wanting to be a baby. I think that knowing the story of Blue the Bird might help him understand that growing brings new opportunities!
