A vivacious and endearing story of identification, values, and the rewards in looking closely and thinking imaginatively.
Lali finds a little feather in the field. Who might it belong to? Lali sets out to find the feather a home, but one bird after another rejects it. The feather is too small for Rooster, too slow for Crow, and too plain for Peacock.
That is until Lali decides to keep the little feather and discovers all the things she can do with it, and the other birds begin to recognize its value.
Farhana Zia offers a charming tale with an inventive circular structure that reveals the importance of looking beyond first impressions. Illustrator Stephanie Fizer Coleman brings this delightful story of imagination and inspiration to life.
