A picture book from Derek Desierto about a bird who doesn’t fit in . . . at first!
It’s SO hot outside. All the fancy birds are gathered around the water, wishing they could cool off. But they don’t want to get wet and ruin their fine feathers.
Oddbird isn’t worried about his feathers; he wants to go for a refreshing dip. But he doesn’t fit in. He’s not fancy, or colorful. He’s just . . . different. The other birds don’t want him around. How can he join them?
Oddbird’s story is one all readers will relate to, and ultimately celebrate.
