No one, no one saw how the bird fell down and no one cared to see how it is going with the poor thing. People just walk over it, almost stepping on it. And then, there is a little boy, who sees the bird, runs toward it and picks it up.
And boy, do I love, love! the mother. Unlike many mothers, while she is hesitant at first, she just picks up the bird, wraps it in her scarf and puts the bird carefully in her bag! Like, wow, GO Mom!
Then the whole trip back to home, where they meet dad. Together, mom, dad and the kid take care of the bird, making sure it is fed, that it has a warm home and that it is all better before letting the bird go.
The book was just beautiful, I was so sad for the pigeon, no one who cared about it until one little kid. The illustrations are gorgeous and give enough candy for the eye. There is a whole lot of detail in the illustrations, enough that I sometimes forgot about the story to just check out the background. 🙂
I would really recommend this book to everyone. It is short, but you won’t be disappointed.
