Book Review/Giveaway: The Goodwill Vultures Club. A Day of Heroes. Ends July 10th
The Goodwill Vultures Club. A Day of Heroes by Author HuGH wILLARD
About the Book: Roberta, who prefers to be called Rob, is a gentle spirit and often misunderstood by people who don’t see beyond her outward appearance. “Heroes for the Day” is the story of Buzz and Rob who learn that even an ugly, ailing bird is capable of bringing life and happiness into the lives of others.
My Review: When 10 year old Buzz Steward came across a wounded vulture while camping with his dad and brother he took the bird home and nurse it back to health. The Vulture became his best friend and he named her Roberta, Rob for short. Buzz formed a club with his pet friend Rob and two dogs
When Buzz’s friend PeeWee told him about a commercial about the Animal Hero’s contest, Buzz decided to enter contest with Rob since the contest is about how animals deeply impact the life of someone. Buzz and Rob seem to be a good candidate, since his parents’ divorce he had been so up set till he found Rob.
But some people in his community were quite antagonistic toward Buzz and his avian friend. People do not like vultures because they are not attractive as parrots and they eat dead animals. So why would he have a disabled ugly looking vulture as a pet? While others see the vulture as ugly, others see her as inspiration and joy.
This story teaches us not to treat people differently disabled or not.
