Chickadee Like Me
by Holly Kerr-Fernandez
Baby chickadee is full of curiosity about the world, and he grills mama bird relentlessly, as children are wont to do. As the story unfolds, you may unintentionally learn interesting facts about life in the forest, especially among our feathered friends. With a message of diversity, each creature has a special purpose or gift to share with others. The entire story is written in verse, making for an enjoyable read, with fun facts about each “neighbor,” whether near or far. The author hopes Chickadee Like Me leaves the reader with an appreciation for hospitality and tolerance toward others; how we can live together in peace and harmony.
