A Dog Named Bird
by Annie Streit
A Dog Named Bird is the story of a Golden Retriever named Bird and her journey finding her forever home.
It is the second book of a series of rhyming picture books. The first book is titled Scooter and His Scoot Scoot. Both books focus on empathy, understanding and accepting differences, and overcoming obstacles. This book shows the impact of unconditional love, and the importance of fostering and adoption. Bird is a great role model for never giving up and having a positive outlook on life. The story not only shows that this family provided a home and love for Bird, but it also shows how much love Bird gave to her new family.
