The Cheer-Up Bird
The Cheer-Up Bird by Edward van de Vendel
(Lemniscaat USA LLC, 2015, 32 pages)
A vibrant, colorful bird wakes up in her nest, surrounded by her chicks. As she flies through the air, she brings joy and energy to all animals in the wood but with every encounter she loses a little of his color. At the end of the day she is gray and tired, until she returns to her nest where the presence of her children revitalizes her with color and life.
