The Little Parrot and the Angel’s Tears is a truly touching children’s book. The simple word choices and rhyming scheme appeal to young audiences while the underlying message is applicable to all ages. The themes of self-acceptance and compassion hit home but are only the icing on top of the greater message of making a difference in the world around us. One person can impact the lives around them and the world, no matter how small that person is.
The pictures are beautifully drawn by the author in keeping with the cultural tone of the story. When we finished reading this book, my son immediately asked me to read it again. I’m certain that your children ask the same.
