“You are not a boat, or plane, or a Snort!’

This one has always touched me! A new born bird searching for his momma. Sigh... ( )

"My daughter got this as a Christmas novel (in 2015) from her Grandfather and recently (in 2017) decided to use it as her first 1st Grade book report book. She has nothing but sweet words to say about it and it was the first novel she was able to read by herself.

It's a great learning novel and it's very silly."
