PB Review: Bird Hugs

January 7, 2021

Bird Hugs written and illustrated by Ged Adamson, Two Lions, 2020.

Bernard, the bird, has a problem. His friends have all left the nest and flown away, but Bernard can’t. He is different than his bird friends. His oversized wings hang to the ground. They’re too heavy to fly. Bernard tries everything to get his wings working, but he has no luck. One day he hears a sob from none other than an orangutan. Bernard uses his oversized wings to give him a hug. The orangutan immediately feels better – much better. Soon everyone wants a hug from Bernard. They tell him their problems. Bernard listens and gives them a hug. With each hug, Bernard’s wings become stronger. With his new strength, he knows he can fly. Bernard tries again and again with no luck. He finally has the strength to realize flying isn’t everything – especially when you have friends. Ged Adamson‘s text and humorous illustrations are filled with heart and include a surprise ending that readers won’t want to miss!
