Little Bird You Are Perfect by Shelley Joy   
Little Bird awakens to a perfect day. It is going to be his
first real taste of the real world and he is so excited! What
he finds during his adventure, is something entirely
different. His excitement about his perfect day turns to
sadness when he realizes that he is different from all of
the other birds he encounters and is reminded of his
differences by a group of more grown up birds who tease
him. A visit by Native American Sorceress Kanka, changes
Little Bird’s outlook on himself as he gazes into the pools
of her eyes and he sees himself as the Great Spirit sees
him, perfect in every way! Just like Little Bird, YOU are
perfect too!

Shelley Joy believes that Little Bird is a healing book for adults and a
positive affirmation fairy-tale for children. Little Bird captures the positive
nature of children everywhere. Shelley Joy knows that there is a bit of
"Little Bird" in each of us, and that there are times that we doubt our own
perfection that we are the best "me" we can be based on others'
perception of who we are, making this enchanting children's tale, a
classic for children of all ages.
