God’s Birds is a children’s book I am in the process of self-publishing. I wrote this story many years ago and I am happy it is finally the kind of story that I feel it should be. Like my other children’s book, Wolf Whispers, it tackles the subject of grieving the loss of a loved one. Unlike WW, this one is for the bird lover and the birds in this story are not so much about bringing comfort to a person who is grieving but they’re actually a very special kind of bird. They say angels come in many disguises and I believe they can be birds, too!
This story was illustrated by my daughter, Jennifer Wilson, with black and white illustrations. It will be published in early May.
Here is the blurb:
Simon is a little boy who finds a starving bird in the park. He shares his food with the bird and later notices the bird closely keeping an eye on him every day. What Simon doesn’t know is that the bird had been with him all his life, watching over him wherever he went. Simon eventually learns that this is one of God’s very special birds.
