Now I’m a Bird

Julianna didn’t mean to be a bird. It just happened, feather by feather. “It’s a rare and beautiful condition,” explains the note her mom sends to school, though it doesn’t help with the teasing. But Julianna’s wings take her to places she hadn’t imagined, with a birds-eye view that gives her a new perspective and the courage to find a flock of her own. Told with kid-friendly humor and heart, this is a unique story about embracing the wild and wonderful parts of ourselves and others.
