Feathers for Phoebe: big day in library land tomorrow
We're celebrating National Simultaneous Storytime with the book 'Feathers for Phoebe' by Rod Clement. It tells the story of a small grey bird Phoebe who wants to be noticed so goes to her glamourous friend Zelda for help. Zelda offers many new crests, wings and tails to make Phoebe beautiful but Phoebe ends up so dressed up that she can't actually fly.
It's a story of learning contentment with who you are and what you look like - it's a lovely little story.
The children's team that I'm involved with at work are going to act out the story with puppets and props - should be a riot. We're looking forward to a fun morning.
