The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the sun is shining — the Easter holiday is upon us! A season for celebrating the wonder and enamor of life, especially among family and friends. And what better way to spend quality time with loved ones, than by reading a quality story? Books, especially translated stories, instill within us a curiosity about life, about new and different people & places. Reading stories, like Tiny Owl’s picture book A Bird Like Himself, together with loved ones is a special shared experience — especially during this Easter holiday. A little bird named Baby hatches from an egg into a family of different animals, and, despite their best efforts, none of them can teach Baby how to fly! It is not until Baby meets a bird just like him that he finally flaps his wings and takes flight. A story about identity and caring for others, A Bird Like Himself also reiterates the importance of family. Despite being a different cast of animals, in Baby’s case, family is made up of those who matter to you, and who you matter to in return. Kindness, acceptance and love can be shared throughout the Easter holiday, especially through reading. So pick up a book (and a picnic blanket) and bask in the beautiful springtime with someone you love! Happy Easter!
