How to Heal a Broken Wing
This is possibly one of the sweetest children's books I've come across lately. I chose this from the kids section of a local bookshop recently. Lucy was looking elswhere. Audrey was hurling books from the shelves like she does at our bookshelf at home.
And on that note, where Lucy longs to be a fairy/dancer/princess when she grows up I really feel the vocation of librarian is calling Audrey. She seems fascinated with books - both reading and throwing them - plus she is obsessed with the self-checkout machine at our local library, moreso than all the fun and glory of the childrens section.
Anyway, Will is the main character in this short-ish, pictorial book. A bird hits a window high above the city and falls to the ground. No-one sees it fall, no-one notices it on the ground. Except for Will.
I think I took to this book because I am a bit of a 'Will too.
