The Mulberry Bird: An Adoption Story

Free sample

In this classic adoption picture book for children, Mother Bird rises to meet the challenges of bringing up her baby bird against all odds in an enduring tale of sacrifice, wisdom and love.

When a storm scatters her nest, Mother Bird is forced to think about how best to care for her precious baby bird. She faces the heart-breaking choice of either continuing to struggle on her own, or giving her baby to another family of birds to care for him in their strong, secure nest. In telling the story of baby bird, The Mulberry Bird sensitively explores common issues in adoption: from the enduring force of a birth parent's love to the importance of nurturing an adoptive child in its new environment.

Featuring newly commissioned full-color illustrations throughout, this book is ideal for reading aloud with children aged 5-10 in adoptive families, and their siblings, whether at home or in school.
