    1. Luckily for one young girl, Eliza has been given wings to fly by her mother, and learns that helping someone who s being bullied is the right action After seeing Lainey, a girl new in school teased and bullied, and standing back at first, Eliza realizes she can t just watch any The book will be terrific to discuss with younger students When I ve read about bullying, I learned that there are three groups to consider, the bully, the bullied, and the bystanders All play a role in these terrible act [...]

    2. The basic message of this book is about how to help not feel helpless when you see someone getting bullied how to speak out and make a difference, and sometimes when one person steps forward, others will also do so and it can stop the silence, wich can stopt he problem THe illustrations in the story are really unusual and really good I really found them intriguing and kept my interest as a grown up reading the story I would recommend highly for the 4 8 year old.

    3. Really interesting artwork This story is not sugar coated, it feels somewhat dark and the illustrations remind me of Dave McKean s work As an adult reading this story, I am reminded of how I felt as a child I m not sure how a child would react to this story, but I felt very emotional reading it I loved the saying Look down and see what is Now, look up and see what can be.

    4. Bird Child by Nan Forler, illustrated by Francois Thisdale 2009 This is a story that I m going to think about for a while I loved how originality and speaking up for others rose up above all other bits of the story I also appreciated that there wasn t resounding regret at the end of the story.

    5. Lainey did not cry and she did not smile.It was as though the others had taken what was inside herand buried it along with her hat.She collapsed onto her seat and picked up her pencil.And from that girl came drawings of her sadnessthat made Eliza feel shame.

    6. This Shining Willow Award Nominee is a beautifully written story of a young girl learning to do what is right The descriptive language and dreamy multi modal images combine to create a truly wonderful reading experience.

    7. This book has wonderful illustrations It has a great message for kids too My kids really enjoyed this book and so did I.

    8. A surprisingly good picture book Teaches many lessons in a simple, yet sweet manner I almost teared up at one point while reading this to the kids I babysit.
